Peacebeam — Change your day, change the world.
In 2016 in London on a cold winters day I co-founded Peacebeam a mindful/ kindful tech start up with 4 other amazing humans. Bought together by Jane Murray Peacebeam’s Founder we bonded over a shared frustration and common interest… the London commute where cramped sardine like quarters have become the norm, friendly eye contact a thing of the past and the chance of securing a seat almost as likely Trump winning at election… ohh wait that happened — well you get my point.
With large amounts of optimism in tow we set out to better understand the core frustrations with the commute and deliver an app based solution to improve the daily grind faced by so many.
Peacebeam — What Does it Mean?
To wish, unconditionally and from the deepest part of being , unrestricted good for yourself and for others. By practicing this art, you are activating your deepest creativity and changing the atmosphere around you.
Peacebeam assists by providing you with audio activations and inspiring quotes, then you do rest by beaming your positive vibes out into the world for others to feel around you.
We’re Not Mindfulness — We’re Kindfullness the Cooler Older Sister.
The Commute — CC: London
For those of us who aren’t lucky enough (or don’t want to) live stones throw from work, catching 1, 2 even 3 tubes/ trains to work everyday, twice a day is often unavoidable. As someone who once commuted from East to West London (Stoke Newington to Paddington) via 3 tubes lines, total travel time 65mins, while feeling as close to a Sardine as humanly possible the struggle is REAL.
What’s it really like you say?
The London commute is an experience like no other and often consists of:
- Zoning out in order to survive the sardine hustle
- Plugging into Spotify to drown out mood
- Hoping for a little WIFI connection so that your social’s update
- Reading a book or more likely some mag that’s been thrust into your hand as you entered the station
What the expereince definitely is NOT:
- Getting into a relaxed peaceful state of mind to start the day
- Sending positive vibes to the person next to you despite their bag literally pushing you into someone else
- Feeling a sense of empowerment & connection to community you’re in
This is where Peacebeam comes in…
You’ve may have heard of the idea that in order to have outer peace we must cultivate our inner peace… no worries if you hadn’t you have now. Look it’s a nice idea but inner anything is pretty hard to cultivate when you are worried about work, money, relationships, BREXIT, how many likes your instagram post received.
These are the times when we most need to access our inner calm, but find it most difficult to do.
Thanks to developments in quantum theory and research into the human electromagnetic field, we can now demonstrate the impact of thoughts and mood and learn how to alter them from a negative state to a positive state fast & effectively.
Form a Habit with Peacebeam
The real key to making a habit stick is to make it so small that you can’t say no try a Peacebeam activation for a peaceful journey and a peaceful day.
Try one on the bus, the train, the tube or in the traffic and learn how to Notice, Breathe, Activate and Peacebeam.

Wireframing & User Testing
Using the double diamond method to discover, define, develop and deliver we have conducted three rounds of digital wireframes and user testing.
In 2017 we developed our first clickable prototype and tested it on a group of 5 users in London, since then we have iterated and tested several times applying divergent and convergent thinking at every stage of the process.
We’re also exploring blockchain technology to understand how through the App’s subscription model and the users new habit we could build a currency of kind-fulness that gives back to the broader community.
Peacebeam’s aim is to raise the collective vibration of those looking to improve the most stressful part of their day — the commute.
The higher the frequency of your energy or vibration, the lighter you feel in your physical, emotional, and mental bodies. You experience greater personal power, clarity, peace, love, and joy.
Through awareness and activation together we can turn that dreadful time of the day into something positive and powerful.
Peacebeam has been transformative in so many ways as it essentially introduced me to the principles of human centred design and was the project with purpose I’ve been looking for. It also gave me the confidence to pursue my passion for User Expereince which resulted in me committing to the full time UX Design Immersive course at General Assembly.
Currently based in Melbourne I work remotely on Peacebeam to deliver all UX/UI solutions, graphic and digital branding outputs as well marketing strategies. Regular communication and excellent time management allow remain a key member of the Peacebeam team, contributing ideas verbally and visually over email/skype/ trello/ dropbox.
If you’re looking for an experienced digital designer with strong UX/UI knowledge, I’m looking for you. Let’s chat.
