Social, cultural, and systemic approaches
How do different perspectives shape mindfulness?
In this strand, we’ll look at mindfulness-based approaches in light of today’s big challenges, like social inequality, racial injustice, and the ecological crisis, and how these affect individuals and groups. We’ll explore the potential for mindfulness to help us navigate these challenges and what mindfulness-based practitioners, teachers, and researchers can do to build awareness and offer mindfulness in ways that are fair and welcoming for everyone.
Strand 3 includes, but is not limited to:
- Mindfulness and neurodiversity
- Mindfulness and culture
- Equality, diversity, and inclusion in mindfulness
- Mindfulness and healthcare
- Mental and physical health
- Mindful parenting
- Systemic barriers to accessing mindfulness
- Mindfulness in education
Strand 1 begins with a Keynote from Rhonda Magee. After this you can choose to attend either: a related panel discussion, workshop, research symposium, or guided practice, which will be held across various spaces in Bangor University’s Pontio Centre
