This two-hour talk will cover the fascinating roots of mindfulness.

Mindfulness is used widely in the world today. But, how did these practices come about? Mindfulness is useful everywhere, so the Buddha said. Using Early Buddhist Texts, this session will focus on the Buddhist foundations of Mindfulness. It will also present examples of the Buddha’s teachings and practices on Mindfulness: particularly, the vital links between mindfulness, nature, values, workplace and sustainable living.

The event is facilitated by Don de Silva.

Don de Silva is an environmentalist, journalist, author, Buddhist Chaplain, and trainer. He worked as a senior official with the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) and implemented effective global media campaigns to create awareness about sustainable development and has participated in creating new forms of environmental diplomacy.

A certified mindfulness trainer, he focuses on the Buddhist foundations of mindfulness, particularly its relevance to sustainable living. Presently a university mentor, he has worked in chaplaincy, delivering sessions on areas, such as mindfulness and confidence building, reducing stress and anxiety, mindful learning and speaking. Through the Tariki Buddhist Therapists Forum, he has delivered sessions on faith, environment and justice; responding to climate change and COVID 19; and Buddhism and Action.
