Welcome to the Alumni Group Mindfulness After Cam. We are a registered group with the University of Cambridge Alumni Department.
Our core objective is to promote the well-being of University of Cambridge alumni and their friends and family through mindfulness meditation; further enhancing knowledge about mindfulness; and bringing the mindfulness community together post-Cambridge.
You do not need any previous experience meditating to join the group - members of all levels and experiences are welcome.
How did Mindfulness After Cam come about?
Since 2015 the University of Cambridge has offered Mindfulness courses with their practitioner Dr Elizabeth English. The mindfulness community has grown steadily and two recent alumni who graduated in June 2020 spent their summer setting up this group, so that alumni will also have a mindfulness community after Cambridge.
What are the benefits of being part of Mindfulness After Cam?
This group values diversity, inclusion, compassion, and as such we take great effort to make it a safe space for all who join. We welcome everyone and do not tolerate discrimination in any form. The group is also open to friends and family of alumni who identify with mindfulness.
Growing the Community
We are looking for volunteers to grow the core committee and are particularly looking to fill the roles of treasurer, web/social media officer and events officer. Weekly commitment would likely be 1-2 hours. Please get in touch with us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to be part of creating and maintaining this community!
We look forward to meeting you...
Isabel graduated from Homerton in 2020 , and is now working as an English Language Teacher in China. She became interested in mindfulness after becoming vegan in early 2019, as she wanted to explore how mindful connections with animals and the planet's ecosystems might help prevent the worst climate crisis predictions from coming true, and save billions of animal lives. In her free time she likes yoga, surfing and cooking.

She is now working as a Mechanical Engineer in the hopes of decarbonising energy use in the built environment.
