In a time of rapid and destabilizing change and heightened levels of perceived social threat, how might mindfulness assist us in living together in trustworthy and mutually strengthening ways? Law professor and mindfulness teacher Rhonda Magee will discuss the research-indicated possibilities for mindfulness as support for empowering us in moving toward the future with sustainable hope. Participants will experience practices for cultivating ethically grounded, embodied mindfulness in support of personal and interpersonal wellbeing, empathy, forgiveness, and compassionate action.
