John Shearer

The Daily Examiner - - CLARENCE VALLEY'S POWER 30 -

WHILE “mind­ful­ness” seems to be the buzz­word of the mo­ment, Grafton’s John Shearer is well ahead of the pack when it comes to this prac­tice.

He launched his Mind­fully Mak­ing a Dif­fer­ence (Mind­ful­lyMAD.org) web­site in 2011, which has more than 672,000 Face­book fol­low­ers across the globe.

John wears many hats, in­clud­ing mind­ful­ness mas­ter, in­tu­itive life coach, psy­chother­a­pist, hyp­nother­a­pist, mod­ern-day shaman and spir­i­tual healer.

His no­ble goal is to see a world where men­tal health is man­aged with­out med­i­ca­tion.

With a pas­sion for ed­u­cat­ing and en­cour­ag­ing mind­ful­ness in chil­dren as well as help­ing peo­ple over­come ad­dic­tion and men­tal suf­fer­ing, John’s first-hand ex­pe­ri­ence and aca­demic con­tri­bu­tions travel well be­yond the work he does on the ground here in the Clarence.
