Come spend an evening exploring the connection between mindfulness and sustainable living!
The practice of mindfulness goes far beyond practicing being in the present moment. Mindfulness is rooted in awareness: awareness of the self, awareness of the world, and awareness of how we exist in the world and impact it. But it goes one step further, for by being aware of our impact in the world we can also begin to take responsibility for it and behave with caution when we suspect our impact to be negative. In this way, the practice of mindfulness equips us with the mindset that helps in the creation of more sustainable lifestyles - and future.
The night will go as follows:
- you'll attend a panel discussion and Q&A on the importance of a mindful attitude in sustainable living with Ana Carneiro, Hanna Pumfrey and Nat Mady - founders of Be For Change, Acala and Hackney Herbal
- You will then learn about Restorative herbs in a 40min workshop led by Nat
- the time to snack on sustainable munchies and refreshements, and the opportunity to further connect with the speakers and other attendants.
This event will be taking place in East London favourite Benk + Bo, a beautiful venue which perfectly embodies the values being discussed throughout the evening.
Doors open at 6.45pm and the panel discussion will commence promptly at 7pm.
