Cahit works for Breathing Space. He is a mindfulness practitioner and an accredited coach. He enjoys overseeing our carers’ programme, and experiencing the transformation that happens with regular practice.

Kāvyamaṇī is a Buddhist name meaning 'Jewel of Inspiration'.  It was here, at Breathing Space, on a mindfulness for depression course, where she first learned to meditate.  It was the beginning of a journey that continues to this day and has radically transformed her life.  She lives and works in the local Tower Hamlets community and wants to share all she has gained from Breathing Space, with anyone who comes calling to its doors.
