Multicultural Mindfulness Courses

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 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 provide a uniquely multicultural space to come together in unity and solidarity. 

However, if you feel you need to explore some of the social aspects of mindfulness and identity based harm as part of an affinity group? We also support you in that work too.

Affinity Groups

We currently offer affinity groups for racialised black and people of colour and culture, racialised white people, and male and female classification. However, we also intend to offer affinity groups for mixed race groups, the LGBTQIA+ community, class divides, disability and religious groups to facilitate practice, reflection and learning of mindfulness in a contextual framework. The aim of the infinity groups are to cultivate ways to address the historical and current trauma of particular marginalisation experienced.

If you are a mindfulness practitioners and teacher or facilitator able to lead a specific affinity group, please get in touch as we would love to hear from you.

Importantly, all affinity groups and master class workshops are established to create safe spaces where particular social and culture needs can be met. It is however important to highlight that we invite affinity groups to be challenged by contextual guest speakers and Q&A sessions to deepen learning and connections across perceived boundaries.     

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 educational wisdom required to make cross group dialogue authentic, collaborative, sustaining and deeply transformative to social and environmental injustice.
