Into The Heart Of Mindfulness by Ed Helliwell 📚🧘🏻♀️
Text extracted from Amazon:
Plagued by anxiety and depression for much of his twenties and early thirties, Ed Halliwell frantically searched for ways to understand and relieve his distress. Eventually he stumbled on meditation and Buddhism, and discovered a path that was different from the other medical, psychological and spiritual cures he had tried. That path was mindfulness and the deeper he went into the practice the more it transformed his life, easing his depression and helping him see each moment as precious. A one-time editor for FHM magazine, Ed’s life has changed radically - he now teaches mindfulness to others.
In this book, Ed explores how mindfulness can help us see and transform our unhelpful biases and habits, enable us to live more at peace with stress and uncertainty, cultivate cheerfulness and compassion, and help us to find our life’s calling - if we are willing to journey to the heart of the practice. Offering his own experiences as inspiration, Ed emphasises that mindfulness training is a lifelong path and complete way of being rather than just a short course or quick fix. With practical advice and refreshing candour, he explores how working with the realities of our minds, bodies and day-to-day existence - rather than striving for positive results - can, paradoxically, help us rediscover a richly nourishing, deeply-textured life.

Here at Lumi Gemstones, we pride ourselves on wrapping your items well & making sure they still feel like a gift to yourself, whilst also keeping the planet in mind.
We limit our bubble wrap usage, whilst ensuring your products are safe (on more delicate items, the bubble wrap usage will be higher), we re-use packaging from our supplier orders whilst still maintaining a high level of presentation, we use recyclable tissue paper, 100% recyclable plastic shipping bags & cardboard boxes.
If you have a query about how your order will be packaged, please contact us!
We don’t offer a gift wrapping service at this time.
I love to allow our customers to choose their crystals, this is why we list as many specimens as possible individually, so that you can see individual crystals & choose the one you are most drawn to.
Unfortunately, due to high quantities of stock of certain items, such as raw crystals & tumblestones, I am not able to offer this option. We do not take requests on this items either, such as ‘a deep blue one’ or ‘a large light purple’ for instance, so please don’t be disappointed if your crystal isn’t exactly as requested.
Crystals are created by Mother Nature, & due to this they vary from piece to piece in colour, size & shape. I photograph as many different angles on our stock as possible, to give you the best view prior to ordering.
Unfortunately we can’t be held liable for courier delivery delays & unless agreed otherwise, no postage fee will be refunded for delays.
If your item is ‘lost in the post’ or uncollected from your sorting office, it will be returned to us. If this is the case, we will be in touch with you. Another postage fee will need to be paid before we re-dispatch your parcel, alternatively we can create a credit note for your order (excluding delivery fee) & you can spend this on the shop within 12 months. Unless your item is returned to us within 30 days, you won’t qualify for a refund.
If your item is damaged in the post, please get in touch straight away. We will need specific photographs of the packaging, along with the damaged item. We request these photographs in order for us to make a claim with the courier & receive a refund. We would not be able to offer a refund or send an alternative/replacement if we do not receive photographs, as this prevents us from claiming successfully.
In some cases we would ask for the item to be returned (we would refund you for delivery costs), this is for further investigation or to send to our suppliers so they can conduct an investigation (item dependant).
We aim to work together throughout this process, & come to a solution as soon as possible for you.
We use a variety of couriers. Our most popular is Royal Mail.
All orders are shipped with a fully tracked service .
- Standard delivery option: Tracked Royal Mail 48 - estimated delivery time of 2 working days, but can take 3-5 working days, or longer during busy periods.

We accept returns for all jewellery items apart from earrings, this is due to health & safety legislation. We will only accept a return of earrings if the item has arrived & is faulty. Customers must contact us within 14 days of receiving the item to discuss the fault.
We do NOT ship with Delivery Duty Paid (DDP). This means that depending what country you are in & the cost of your order, you may be liable to pay import duty. This is charged at the rate of your country & only applies to goods valued higher than your country’s threshold. This can be found easily online, so you can calculate prior to ordering/receiving your goods.
We ship with Delivery At Place (DAP) which means that our customers are liable to pay any import duty & complete any paperwork requested from their couriers.
On Etsy, for some countries, you are now able to pay tax at the check out, which means you will not be charged again when customs receive your parcel.
We take no responsibility for any import charges.
We do not refund for any unclaimed, rejected international parcels unless we are at fault. We still offer refunds for international parcels if our returns process is followed (contact us within 14 days, & return to us within 30 days). We do not refund for unexpected, unapproved international parcels. If an international has been received back with us, we will contact you & ask if you want the parcel re-sending at your cost, or if you want a credit note issuing (this excludes shipping costs).
If an order is unclaimed in an EU country & is returned due to this, or is returned for ANY reason & there is an import duty payment outstanding, this payment will be deducted from any refund or credit note you are entitled to.
