Join Kristine Janson, Dean Francis, Aesha Francis and Fay Adams as we come together to look at what mindfulness can bring to the table around social inclusion and what an awareness of the social context of mindfulness can bring to our practice. We will explore how our differences can unify us rather than separate us.
As we unpack the habitual patterns, perceptions, projections, assumptions and goals that we use to navigate the world, we will become increasing aware of how much our own ‘reality’ is just that, our own. In this way we will naturally become more adept at relating to others where we encounter difference. This is the vital labour that is needed to ‘widen the circles of compassion’ and create a more inclusive world.
In this way we will journey alongside each other in recognising that which obscures the truth of our interconnectedness, deep kinship, common ground and humanity. Our intention for the weekend, is to provide a safe space to practice, share, discuss and learn how social mindfulness may facilitate social change in the 21st Century.
This weekend is for anyone who has completed our Mindfulness Level One: Being Present training. It is for those practicing for personal reasons as well as those who are teaching or training to teach. If you are a Mindfulness teacher this weekend counts as CPD.
