Wow! Welcome, Mafalda! I look forward to exploring your work.

What kinds of social responsibility activities do you develop? 

Out of curiosity, could you share what lead you to fall in love with mind potential in 2008? 

Looking forward to being a part of this community with you,

Sean

Ohhhh Sean, thank you 🙂

I fell in love with mind potential in 2008 when I arrived to a period of my life where I felt lost....I friend of mine saw that and invited me to be part of a project of meditation with children, and I said yes....That's when all started.  It took me 5 years but in 2013 I quit my job and createt bloom - Focus on the Good and never looked back.

As far as social responsibility activites are concerned, I've started working in 2014 as a volunteer and mindfulness facilitator in State prisons with inmates.

I've carried out a mindfulness program - Breaking Bars - To Be - at the Carregueira State prison in Lisbon with 12 inmates identified with the higher levels of aggressiveness - working with mindfulness for inclusion and it was a transforming experience to me - we always go with our bias/prejudices and fear and the greatest lesson was that we are all human, we are all equal.

Thank you for wanting to know.

Warmly, Mafalda
