This 6-week course has been designed to nourish and inspire leaders and practitioners in the fields of social change, both personally and professionally, to integrate mindfulness training into the launch, growth, and sustainable practice of your work in the world. Whether you are a systems change expert, new to the field of social innovation, or a mindfulness teacher looking to amplify your impact on your community and the systems around you, we welcome you to this course.
Our intention is to demonstrate the symbiotic relationship between embodied mindfulness and social change. Each of our facilitators will speak to their lived experience as practitioners of embodied mindfulness and social change.
At the end of this course, you will walk away with an expanded mindset and specific tools that will build resilience and reduce burnout, as well as a new community that will invigorate and foster ideas and applications of this practice throughout your professional and personal life.
Each session will provide:
- a context for understanding the practice and theory of embodied mindfulness
- a guided practice for direct experience
- opportunity to connect embodied mindfulness practices with systems and design thinking for social change
- discussion and open space for questions and answers
In between each week’s 90-minute session, we will offer suggested home practice. This practice will be short awareness exercises that with repetition will become embodied and naturally available to you when you need them most.
Throughout the course, we will provide you with a variety of tools to cultivate resilience, emotional intelligence and the ability to be in the present moment with kindness. Along the way, we will connect these tools to systems and design thinking practices for sustainable social change, so that you can consider and apply these embodied mindfulness practices to your work as well as your life, and support the change you seek for yourself, your communities and your world.
