• Arrival Sit and Welcome 10 mins
• Short Talk and meditation practice 40 mins
• Mindful dialogue – 30 mins
• Closing reflections and dedication practice – 10 mins
Sessions generally include an arrival and welcome sit, followed by a short introduction talk followed by a guided or occasionally silent meditation.
Participants are encouraged to come along with topics for discussion and or to expect to have a mindful conversation about topics relating to multicultural community building. Discussions and practice will generally be focused around the theme of what it takes to develop social and cultural unity, acceptance, equality, equity and inclusion in modern society.
All discussions are held within a mindful dialogue and community of practice framework. So be prepared to explore how we can use our practice to support authentic embodied communication around the subjects of identity based harm and social conditioning in order to free ourselves from limited beliefs and enter into a bigger space of awareness that connects us back to nature, our true home and each other.
Over the course of these Monday drop in sessions we will use mindful practice and awareness training to explore as a multicultural group some of the biggest and most challenging question we have to ask ourselves in society today. Questions such as, why are we here? what is our purpose? what is knowledge? why critical thinking? intersectionality, race, gender, class, sexuality, age, religion, beliefs, Environmental sustainability, the rationale for affinity groups, what social change might look like? activism, craftivism and the importance of collaboration and unity.
By centering mindfulness, compassion, insight and wisdom development. We will explore through an embodied mindful community of practice conversation, reflection, contemplation and practice framework, non adversarial, but effective pathways to freedom, unity and social justice for self and all generations to come.
We are not a Buddhist or religious group, although we do acknowledge the teachings from various traditions including African and Buddhist Philosophy and Spirituality. So we come together as an inclusive secular mindfulness group focused on developing skills outside of any religious framework or system in the interest of teaching ourselves, each other and wider society a new form of social mindfulness grounded in biopsychosocial learning.
