Gifted Free Places
Gifted free places are offered on the Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction 8 week course for those who are experiencing financial difficulty. If you feel the course would be of benefit to you but due to financial hardship you cannot afford the fees, then Jacqui Mann Associates are ‘gifting’ 5 free places a year for participants. 

Here is why Jacqui Mann  is offering these gifted places:

‘During the last 12 months I have been through a life changing experience.  Like many business owners I’m a control freak, this was something I couldn’t control. I didn’t know how I was going to get through this difficult time in my life. Then I discovered Mindfulness.
Mindfulness helps people find ways to work with the challenges life delivers to them.  I attended Ambers 8 week course and it has completely changed my life. It helped me accept what was happening and learn to live in the present instead of living in the future.
As a business owner I believe it’s important for a business to give something back to their community.  I realised that many people would benefit from the course like I did, but may not have the finances to pay for it.  By gifting these places I hope it will help others experience the benefits of Mindfulness, enhance their life and live in the present.
