Mindfulness Courses General Invitations
The Urban Mindfulness Foundation currently offer a range of uniquely blended mindfulness training programmes to serve everyone living in the Urban Environment. No matter what your social, cultural, religious or economical background, the Urban Mindfulness Foundation aims to open up the availability of inclusive mindfulness training in a way that you can relate too.
With our foundational model of multicultural mindfulness practice, we will always maintain a space for all of us to come together in unity. However, if you feel like you need to explore social aspects of mindfulness and identity based harm as part of an affinity group? We also support you in that work too.
With affinity groups established for those racialised as black and people of colour/ culture and those racialised as white, we offer safe spaces to practice, reflect, and learn what it is to be racialised as a group and then cultivate ways to heal from the historical and current trauma racialisation causes.
Through mindful dialogue and embodied somantic educational learning and cross group dialogue that is an integral part of the process, we develop the skills to collaborate more effectively and sustainably.
We will also establish Affinity Groups for LGBTQi and Gender exploration alongside specialist Class and Environmental justice workshops that offer vital perspectives of the bigger picture.
Importantly, all affinity groups and master class workshops are established to create safe spaces where particular social and culture needs can be met. Groups will also be challenged by cross cultural guest speakers and Q&A sessions to deepen learning focused around social and environmental justice.
Affinity Group Pledge
Each affinity group is established with a clear pledge and intention to practice and explore ways of understanding, healing and resourcing themselves with the wisdom required to make cross group dialogue authentic, collaborative and deeply sustaining as the work that needs to be done towards lasting environmental and social justice.
