The story behind the making of the book

Lockdown Made Me Do It is a collaborative book project sharing the experiences, hopes and fears of the Mindful Therapies community.

‘This book was inspired by the Covid19 pandemic of 2020. We set up a Facebook group called Mindful Therapies Mindful Communities to help people to support one another and share their experiences of lockdown. We also delivered a range of live mindfulness classes. Every week I would post a question to the group and create a poem – or a series of poems inspired by the responses. In a short amount of time we had enough to fill a book! So I thought ‘why not?!’

The project kept growing. We have also produced an accompanying CD with guided meditations and poems read by the contributors! I am so inspired by our community and I can’t wait to share the book with you.’

Thank You!

All profits from the book and CD will go back into the Mindful Therapies community, helping us to continue to provide support in these strange and difficult times.
