We are a Massachusetts-based nonprofit organization, formed in 2019, that relies on grants and donations. Our application for 501(c)(3) tax exempt status to the IRS is pending. We expect to be formally recognized as tax exempt in July 2021.
We are a nonprofit formed to promote and demystify mindfulness by making mindfulness meditation accessible and by demonstrating awareness practices through collaborations with artists and community organizations.
What is Mindfulness & Awareness?
Mindfulness is paying attention, on purpose in a non-judgmental manner, in the present moment.
While mindfulness brings a sharp focus, awareness sees the whole picture.
Awareness centers us by allowing us to step back and observe each thought, emotion, and physical stimulus without letting any or all of them take over our consciousness.
We make mindfulness accessible to all by hosting weekly guided mindfulness meditation sessions on a free or Pay What You Can basis.
A typical session includes light stretching, a guided meditation followed by a short period of reflection and voluntary sharing.
We share mindfulness practices by collaborating with community service organizations and local businesses.
A partial list includes: Sandwich Council on Aging, Barnstable Adult Community Center, Sandwich Public Library, the Sandwich and Mid-Cape Cultural Councils, Wiser Health & Fitness and the Falmouth Public Library.
We promote mindfulness by creating art-making opportunities for local artists to explore the theme of mindfulness in their art.
We believe art-making is a vital component of community health and engagement and are committed to hosting multiple events per year to showcase mindful artists.
