What is the Masterclass about?

Research has demonstrated that workplace mindfulness training has the potential to bring about behavioural, social and environmental change.

The masterclass will enable participants to discover how they can anchor their practice into an ongoing inquiry into ethics, values and behaviour while still honouring and attending skilfully to the issues that individuals and organisations bring to the process.  Compelling research and practice at the interface between mindfulness, and environmental/social change and ethics will be presented. Participants will come to understand how these contemporary understandings of behaviour change principles can underpin mindfulness-based teaching practice.

We will explore case-studies of mindfulness-based teaching within workplace contexts in which there has been a deliberate orientation towards social/environmental change and use these as a springboard to consider some of the ethical tensions and dilemmas that arise within these processes

Who is it for?

This day is one of a series of Workplace Masterclasses being offered by the Oxford Mindfulness Centre.  It is open to all individuals with an interest in how mindfulness can support and enhance personal and organisational wellbeing. These Workplace Masterclasses are particularly informative for practitioners delivering mindfulness based training in the workplace.
