Can mindfulness contribute to a more inclusive culture?

If culture is made up of the values, beliefs, attitudes and behaviours shared by a group of people – then how can mindfulness and a greater awareness of social inequalities transform the status quo? The Sussex Mindfulness Centre rescheduled conference 2023, sets out to explore this question. 

Our keynote speakers will share their research and experience of how mindfulness can contribute to a more inclusive culture. 

Chris Ruane, a driving force behind bringing mindfulness to the UK parliament, will throw light on how it can impact the culture of politics in which power imbalances reinforce societal inequalities.

Chris Tamdjidi, an expert in leadership development, will focus on how mindfulness can transform organisational life and culture.

Miia Chambers talks about co-producing a radically caring culture. Miia is the mindfulness lead at City, Hackney and Waltham Forest Mind and led the development of the Radical Self-Care, mindfulness and compassion based programme shown to have significant benefits for wellbeing. 

Willem Kuyken will outline the growing evidence that Mindful Based Cognitive Therapy can promote mental health and unlock human flourishing in the wider population. Willem is the Ritblat Professor of Mindfulness and Psychological studies at the University of Oxford, and Director of the Oxford Mindfulness Centre. 

The conference takes place on Friday, 10 March, from 9:30am to 4:30pm at the Friends Meeting House, Ship Street, Brighton, BN1 1AF.
