Mindfulness: Developing Agency in Urgent Times

Jamie Bristow (Director, The Mindfulness Initiative), will speak about his new discussion paper which makes a case for training the mind in order to meet more skilfully the manifold existential challenges of our times.

By way of a narrative account of the deeper patterns and mechanics of mindfulness practice, we’ll consider it not as a topical cure for society’s ills, but a way of being in relationship with the world which supports authentic agency: the capacity to act, make choices or exert power. Jamie will propose that the natural human capacity of mindfulness can support our efforts to reclaim and reorient attention towards what matters, reflect more wisely, and act from a place of collective purpose
