Event Details: Mindfulness into Action Initiative

Description:


Mindfulness into Action focuses in epigenetics, empowering individuals to solve complex societal issues, by bringing about greater self-awareness and consciousness

Mindfulness into Action works with individuals to help solve societal issues faced today, such as empowering local indigenous communities to better deal with globalization issues, finding solutions to the academic achievement gap faced by students from immigrant families in the U.S., and other problems that require both inner and outer transformation.

Most personal and societal issues occur due to a person being in a reactive state to their environments, based on their mental models and programmed behavior at a subconscious level. By allowing a person to be aware through various organizational learning techniques with Indigenous ancient knowledge, Mindfulness into Action takes them through a process of growing self-awareness and inner transformation. Thus, they are able to tap into various faculties of their conscious mind (normally inaccessible when a person is in a purely reactive state), and with greater clarity, make better decisions for themselves, their families and society at large.

We invite you to our next meeting on Monday March 24th, from 4 to 6 pm at 306 RH.

Mindfulness into Action is Co-Sponsored by the Teachers College Vice President’s Diversity and Community Initiatives Grant Fund.
