There are more out there than you know, knowledge is the key, awareness is the cure and support gives us the want to continue to fight. Check it out.
Our Story
Of Mindful Manner was born out of a need to better represent the individuals of the world who show no outward signs of their illness. Coping with an invisible illness can be frustrating and painful, but these issues are compounded by a lack of knowledge and understanding. Our reason for being is to help enlighten and encourage our friends, families, neighbors, and co-workers to address individuals with empathy and understanding. At Of Mindful Manner we know that what you see is not always what you get, and because of that, each garment is carefully curated to serve as an invitation for conversation. The more conversation that surrounds invisible illness, the less room there is for stigmas, ignorance and misunderstanding.

We want you to know that we see you and we recognize the battle you are facing. There is a whole community at Of Mindful Manner that supports you.

The Founders
Hello, Cassidy & Savannah here! We are so thrilled you have found your way to our shop. We are sisters who have had our lives tremendously impacted by invisible illness. One of us has Dysautonomia and Chronic Migraines. The other one of us has grown up with a front row seat to living with these conditions, and has shared in the burdens they can cause. That’s the thing about invisible illnesses though.. you can’t tell by looking at us, which one of us fits which description.
We know our story is not unique. Nearly half of the U.S. population lives with some sort of chronic illness and 96% of chronic conditions are invisible. So while you may not suffer from an invisible illness yourself, chances are you know one or several family members/friends or co-workers that do. We pray the future holds cures for everyone, but in the meantime we will dedicate our lives to spreading awareness in hopes of making this world a more mindful one.

My Blessings of the day!

kelly and group roseville

I had such a wonderful blessing today, I put together a support group in Roseville California, We made a connection that was amazing and they want me back. Something learned How many people have any type of vestibular dysfunction. Everyone at the table new a hand full of people with Vestibular Dysfunction of some sort. Which means we need to spread the word even more. But some ideas were brought to my attention and I am jumping on the wagon.

What can a support group do for you, by Veda

Vestibular Disorders Association (VEDA)

Support groups offer vestibular patients a safe and nurturing environment where they can connect with others who are struggling with similar problems. They give patients the chance to find acceptance and discover ways to cope with and manage what is too-often a misunderstood and devastating “invisible” illness. Unfortunately, there are far too few support groups out there, and many patients who are still struggling alone. If you are interested in starting a vestibular support group in your local area, VEDA can help. Find out more: http://vestibular.org/start_support_group
