It’s so hard to encapsulate what Beanology is, what it’s trying to achieve, because it helps everyone in a different way.
It sits somewhere on a rainbow of hope!
Bean HQ is a place where you can come and unwrap your sad, worry, self doubt, shame, insecurity and find compassion and understanding. Validation and warm tea. But it also helps you to keep looking forward. To be counting your blessings, finding new ways to think, to see the world, to travel. I don't believe it's all a mindset! You can’t think your way out of depression, anxiety.... but you can love yourself back to peace....
It’s about waking the you up, that’s didn’t find life wobbly. Wrapping you up with knowledge, hope and optimism. But most of all, it’s about teaching you that your “youness” is all the magic you need, to fuel your life with courage.
