We believe in what cafes can be. They can be more than a place to buy coffee. We see so much more than that. We see potential, opportunity and responsibility. We see a chance to make a difference.
— Jason Dowding

Dharma Business

In addition to their food and beverage offerings, The Blessed Bean has recently launched ‘Dharma Business’, in line with their philosophy of “Connect, Inspire, and Make a Difference”. This not-for-profit venture is aimed at those in demanding working environments to enhance mindfulness as a number of studies have linked this practice to improved well being, productivity and performance. Dharma
Business aims to teach and enhance individuals lives and professional effectiveness by teaching awareness and consciousness and helping people develop a healthy relationship with their working environment through a mindfulness revolution. Meditation enables people to become mindful of how they act towards others, of how they treat themselves and of what they consume. Meditation classes will be offered free to school children in the area to promote Dharma Businesses vision and ethos.
