Deep Roots, Wide Branches: Mindfulness Meets The Work That Reconnects
The challenges of our age demand immediate action but there is a mismatch between our awareness of the threats we face and the level of our collective response to them. This experiential taster session introduces the integration of mindfulness-based approaches with exercises from The Work that Reconnects to nourish steps of courageous change in the face of global emergency.
This event is offered in collaboration with the Mindfulness Network Community Friends (MNCF) - an initiative to engage the wider mindfulness community and reach new audiences. Led by a Committee of Volunteers, supported by the Mindfulness Network, we work together to run a programme of donation-based events and inspiring content. The Committee ensures that the MNCF can best serve everyone by providing opportunities to practice and learn together.

About the training:
Integrated Action: Instigating global change through mindfulness, compassion, and the work that reconnects
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 skillful 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.
