You shall not refer to yourself as ‘Mindfulness Teacher’, as this may be interpreted as misleading to the public.

    • If you are a private practitioner for personal profit, within your own business, and you run the programs and/or workshops created by Elizabeth-Anne Mulhane, without subscribing to an annual membership fee, you will be in breach of these terms and conditions and liable for intellectual property thief.
