Promoting Cultural Intelligence through Mindfulness Practice

Highlighted in the Mindfulness All-Party Parliamentary Group Report “Mindful Nation UK”.  The importance, application and delivery of Mindfulness Based Interventions in the context of socio-economically deprived and ethnically diverse urbanised demographic communities requires significant improvement.

Consequently, The Urban Mindfulness Foundation are focused on addressing the requirements highlighted in the Parliamentary Report to ensure Mindfulness Training can be delivered authentically to a more diverse audience that is representative of our Urban communities and encourages more people from this demographic to both practice and learn to teach Mindfulness across all cultural, religious, ethnic and socio-economical divides in a way that leads to greater cultural intelligence and harmonious inter-connectivity.
