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.
