The Breathworks Foundation

Mindfulness and compassion for pain, stress and illness - helping people reclaim their lives

The Breathworks Foundation was established in 2009 to ensure that mindfulness and compassion training is available to everyone, regardless of circumstances. It brings to life the vision of Vidyamala Burch, Breathworks Co-Founder, who passionately believes that no person or community should be excluded from Breathworks training programmes and courses simply through financial or personal hardship. This is based on her experience of living with severe pain and disability all her adult life.  

We’ve decided to make our Online Community of Practice free for everybody. We wanted to remove any barriers to the beautiful and inspiring connections being made there.

There are of course costs involved with running the Community, and if you are able to, please consider making a donation to help keep it free for everybody in the Breathworks community.
