Integrated Action: Instigating global change through mindfulness, compassion and the work that reconnects
March 5, 2023 @ 2:00 pm - April 9, 2023 @ 4:30 pm GMT
The challenges of our age demand immediate action but there is a mismatch between our awareness of the threats we face and our level of response to them. Mindfulness and compassion-based approaches develop a greater awareness of, and kindness to, the self, other people and the world around us. Such training equips us to turn towards and befriend difficulty in ourselves and in our lives. Integrated Action builds upon this approach, enabling us to turn towards, befriend and act upon global difficulties such as polarised aggression, social inequality and environmental breakdown. Mindfulness helps us to face the issues, compassion connects us with our care for them and Integrated Action engages us in skilful behavioural response. This 6 week Integrated Action course combines mindfulness and compassion-based approaches with exercises from Active Hope and The Work that Reconnects to bring about courageous change in the face of global emergency.
The workshop runs on six consecutive Sunday afternoons from 2.00 – 4.30pm on each day, running 5th March until 9th April.
