This weekend is for anyone who has completed at least the first weekend of the Teaching Level One: Introduction to Teaching Skills course or who have begun teacher training on another pathway. All participants will receive a certificate of attendance for 10 hours of CPD. To book your place please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
The MyBIT programme is being developed in London by The Urban Mindfulness Foundation in collaboration with the Mindfulness Association. This CPD weekend will be co facilitated by Fay Adams Lead Teacher-trainer with the Mindfulness Association and Dean and Aesha Francis of the Urban Mindfulness Foundation
This weekend will be an introduction to the MyBIT programme that aims to nurture the tools to recognise, accept, celebrate and thrive on our differences rather than be threatened or troubled by them. During this CPD weekend we will explore the skills and qualities we all have within us to be in society in ways that benefit humanity, the earth and all life.
We hope that as more of us cultivate individual inner peace and wisdom, we can collectively feel better resourced to do ‘our bit’ to co-create a more peaceful, inclusive and harmonious world. The weekend will offer the opportunity to become more aware of the habitual patterns and perceptions we use to navigate the world we find ourselves in. Patterns which can also obscure the reality of our deep kinship, common ground and interconnectedness.
It could be said that the job of a Mindfulness teacher is to facilitate an ‘inner revolution’. However attention to diversity, inclusion and difference can help empower oneself and others to contribute more fully to a peaceful revolution of kindness and tolerance externally too. Please join us to investigate how elements of mindfulness including stability, curiosity, empathy and insight can facilitate wise discernment and ethical behaviour in relation to various forms of bias, prejudice and discrimination. What does diversity and inclusion mean and what might it look like through the eyes of the Mindfulness practitioner and teacher?
Our intention is to provide a safe space to practice, share, discuss and learn how Mindfulness Based Inclusion Training (MBIT) may facilitate our innate sense of interconnection.
