Why Don’t You Write Me is led by Dr Kitty Wheater, Mindfulness Chaplain, and Associate of the Global Compassion Initiative. She writes the weekly MindLetter, which has over 400 subscribers across the University and has been viewed thousands of times during COVID. Alongside running the UoE’s mindfulness programme for students and staff, Kitty is an anthropologist and writer.
The Rev’d Geoffrey Baines is an Associate Chaplain for part of the week, providing dreamwhispering – a talents-led journey exploring the questions Who is my True Self? and What is my Contribution? – and Mindful Doodling to all students and staff. He is also a freelance dreamwhisperer and illustrator. Since 2014, Geoffrey has written and doodled every day at thinsilence.org, and has published the colouring book Slow Journeys in the Same Direction, bringing his love of doodling and dreamwhispering together.
