Event description
SMC 8th Annual Conference 2020 From the cushion to the street: How can mindfulness help us respond to the world's crises?

About this Event

Friends Meeting House, Ship Street, Brighton BN1 1AF

Friday 12th June 2020

9:30am to 4:30pm (registration from 9am)

Critics of mindfulness have accused it of encouraging a passive, introspective approach to injustice, inequality and the climate emergency. Is this fair ? As these problems become more acute in our times, this conference challenges us to use mindfulness to be active and engaged in response.

Keynote Speakers:

• Byron Lee: 'An Anti-oppressive Mindfulness - is a radical agenda needed to shape the future?'

• Yanai Postelnik: 'Mindfulness in the Time of Extinction: contemplating the inseparability of inner peace and outer transformation.'

• Clara Strauss & Robert Marx: 'How can we create a more mindful workplace?'

The conference is free for SMC advocates and for current/recent (over the last year) Sussex Partnership service users, SMC Trust Approved Mindfulness Teachers/ Practitioners and trainees, and SMC researcher staff and students. The conference is £20 for other Sussex Partnership staff and £75 for the public. You will be provided with a Continued Professional Development certificate. Tea and coffee will be provided. Lunch is not provided but is easily available locally.
