Strand 4: Grassroots, real-world application, and innovation

Grassroots, real world application, and innovation

How does mindfulness fit into real life?

Our changing world needs new, creative, and context-specific ways to offer mindfulness. In this strand, we’ll share the joys and challenges of developing and teaching mindfulness-based programmes in everyday settings. We’ll learn from innovators working across a range of different environments and discover ways to maintain the integrity and depth of our work whilst embracing new ideas. 

Strand 4 includes but is not limited to:

  • Innovative approaches to inclusion, equality, and diversity
  • Grassroots approaches – innovative implementation
  • Innovative approaches to healthcare
  • AI and mindfulness
  • Intersectionality
  • Mindfulness in the workplace
  • Therapeutic applications of mindfulness

Strand 4 begins with a Keynote from Amit Bernstein. 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
