Chloe’s doctoral research (funded by the SWDTP) was based on the lived experiences of and ‘journeys’ with mindfulness. As part of the research Chloe worked with a group of participants, tracing their experiences of mindfulness as both a meditation practice but also as a way of living. Over the course of two mindfulness courses and follow up interviews, she witnessed the transformative effect that mindfulness had on their lives.
Frustrated with the unreadability of a 100,000 word PhD thesis, Chloe was keen to create something accessible that could communicate the transformative experiences that the participants had shared and decided on a zine based on a chapter of her thesis.
To make the booklet interactive and mindful in its format, the zine includes a colouring page in the centre fold, along with three illustrated postcards.
Journeys with mindfulness is free to download here as a pdf, or you can read it on issu here. You can also request a printed copy of the zine and postcards here (these are free with a postage contribution).
