Generating Mindfulness - Discussion
Time & Location
About the Event
Come discuss your ideas on mindfulness, how to apply it on your daily life and how meditation can play a role in cultivating mindfulness. Discover what are its benefits for yourself and for others.
This is an open roundtable discussion lead by Karime Abib from Empowr International. Karime has been a meditation teacher for a few years and is a meditation practitioner for decades, but the idea of this event is to openly discuss various perceptions around mindfulness more broadly. Meditation can be a tool for mindfulness, but that does not mean that mindfulness is not present out of the meditation context. We want to explore the experiences of what being mindful can mean and how we experience mindfulness from others.
Some of the topics we would like to discuss are:
How to be mindful about your own ideas and behaviours?
How to be mindful as consumers?
What would mean to be mindful to our planet?
How to deal with the perception of a lack of mindfulness from others?
What are the practices available to increase or develop mindfulness?
What is the role of meditation in the development of mindfulness?
What to expect:
- A short introduction to our understanding of mindfulness (no longer than 10').
- An open discussion on the topic using proposed questions in small groups.
- A wrap-up moment
- 15' Intro Meditation
