What is Danae?

Danae is a set of digital tools carefully evaluated and curated by eamba to leverage efforts of mindfulness and compassion Teachers.

Why Danae?

Thank you!
eamba is grateful to Matthias Nitsche for sponsoring the use of Mindseed for eamba, and for offering a reduced subscription price to the teachers.
Mindseed was launched by the German Kudima GmbH. It is a learning platform that empowers mindfulness teachers and training companies to offer customised and engaging courses, with features such as mindfulness exercises and a free app.
eamba assessed Mindseed and is convinced about the various benefits for mindfulness teachers, therefore it is being integrated into Danae, eamba’s digital assistent for mindfulness teachers.

What is Danae-Communication & Marketing?
Danae-CM is the AI-enhanced digital Assistant curated by eamba, based on the Umni platform. The AI Assistant is multifunctional solution that can be used for customer assistance, helping with sales and marketing efforts of the teachers online and offline, assisting users 24/7 in one or more languages. It works on the teacher website and has its own landing page (subdomain and hosting included) if the teacher doesn’t have a website. Danae comes preloaded with information curated by eamba and trained in advance on a set of customer questions and answers.

Danae-CM was created by eamba and is being trained on trusted resources only.
This means Danae does not access the internet to search for information but use only information provided by eamba.
Therefore it is unable to create fantasised answers, like its famous sibling trained on the good, the bad and the ugly of the complete internet.

Why Danae-CM?
Many teachers need to intensify their communication, yet are often not trained in effective marketing strategies and tools. Based on Umni, Danae – Communication & Marketing supports targeted 24/7 communication to ensure that potential clients receive attention when they need it, creating more opportunities for teachers to cater to their need for training and coaching.

What does Danae-CM offer?
Danae supports intensive communication with customers about the depth of mindfulness, teacher-led training, and other related topics that they are interested in. In the hands of a teacher, Danae reduces the time put into non-teaching tasks, and helps a teacher save on time and resources, boosting their marketing efforts online and offline, and allowing them to help 24/7, when customers need it.

Who can use Danae-CM?
All qualified mindfulness teachers can apply  to use eamba’s Danae-CM as a basis to create your own personalised digital assistant for communication and marketing.
Two options,
(1) either you are are or become a member of an eamba Association, and get the eamba promotion code upon application,

IMAGINE …

Instead of acting fear-based with regard to digital assistance, what if we carefully curate Danae and use it with integrity?
If we get it right, digital tools can leverage our efforts.
Let’s tread carefully and progress  steadily.

Let’s build the best solutions, stimulating each other’s creativity in a race to the top.
Not competing against each other in a race to the bottom.

Constructive competition is an amazing tool, it’s competition wielded wisely.
Let’s change the game – collaborating.

“There’s no use trying,” Alice said, “one can’t believe impossible things.” 
“I daresay you haven’t had much practice,” said the Queen.
“When I was younger, I always did it for half an hour a day.
Why, sometimes I’ve believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast.”
