Mindfulness: A shift from stress-based reduction to organisational change
‘Social Mindfulness’ explains how we create a sense of self in relationship to others. Mindfulness practice enables us to diffuse the sense of a separate self and work with others in the service of collective interests. It is a new approach that applies mindfulness to understand the social causes of stress and empower change. Mindfulness-Based Organisational Education (MBOE) combines mindfulness with a sense of relatedness to break the illusion of the separate self.
In this 1.5 hour workshop, Mark Leonard, author of ‘Social Mindfulness: A guide to meditations from MBOE’ will share an introduction to social mindfulness and explain the workings of the human, embodied social mind and how social mindfulness gives us the power to change the way things work.
This workshop is free to MWC members and open to friends, followers and guests for £15.00 or donation.
Mark Leonard has searched for a means to make meditation accessible to a mass audience since the early 2000s. He played a key role in establishing the Oxford Mindfulness Centre, opened in 2008, and then adapted Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy for the workplace. The result of a series of innovations, Mindfulness-Based Organisational Education represents a new approach to fostering social leadership and systemic change.
