Mindfulness for the future human

Feature image for event

Sophisticated technology has facilitated life in the 21st century yet at the same time rates of depression, anxiety and stress are on the rise, especially in young people. Mindfulness has been shown to effectively help these conditions and is also a capacity we can cultivate in order to be fully present in the service of wise and compassionate living. Mindfulness may also become the core 21st-century skill, as it gives us a competitive advantage over machines: awareness and meaning itself.

Mindfulness approaches are often taught in groups leading to a sense of community and connection as well as gaining the individual skills to live life more fully and effectively. Jamie Bristow, Director of the UK Mindfulness Initiative, Chris Burns, SA Mental Health Commissioner and Dr Maura Kenny, Specialist Mindfulness Teacher and Psychiatrist will discuss the implications and possibilities for SA’s future humans.
