A warm welcome!
The Mindfulness Network for People of Colour (MNPC) is an independent not-for-profit organisation established in 2019 in the UK for wellbeing programs for people of colour. MNPC brings together community leaders, peer group facilitators and a team of advisory board members, volunteers and project coordinators.
As well as regular retreat online, we host a monthly 'Breathe' event on the first Sunday of each month. This brings together a unique blend of elements of mindfulness, including sound energy healing and music, and a range of high calibre presenters from around the world.
Our speakers' topics include issues of belonging, healing through our ancestors, African-centred mindfulness, addiction recovery, racism and oppression, overcoming hardship and adversity, resilience, dharma for people of colour, shamanism, sound energy healing, LGBTQIA+ and much more.
This project was set up primarily to provide friendship and wellbeing, and has grown with an energy and force encompassing the wide definition of 'People of Colour' to offer hope and opportunity following the global uprising of June 2020 and the challenges facing us.
Is anyone listening and taking action around issues of racial awareness? Yes, MNPC is. And we are here to offer the world safe spaces to build community, strengthen resilience and heal.
I would like to welcome you to our dream of establishing the first mindfulness centre in the UK for people of colour.
