Churches - To provide denominations and churches with Christian Mindfulness Workshops, Retreats, Online Courses and Meditations (Bulk Access Discount available for the online course); training and access to the Full 9 week course material (through the purchase of Annual Licenses).

Mindfulness can be beneficial in helping people process grief and trauma. The Christian Mindfulness online course is suitable for people with a Christian faith who are open to exploring meditative forms of prayer. This is viewed as a "low intensity" intervention that can help as part of a wider care package.
