Missing Class – A One Day Workshop Exploring Class Awareness

When: 11 Oct 2019
Where: Greencoat Place, London
Tutor: Colette Power

This one day experiential workshop provides the opportunity to raise class awareness and to explore, identify and address classism within the mindfulness field. The workshop supports organisations to become more inclusive and individuals to become more aware.

We will:
Explore cultural beliefs about social class
Explore class barriers
Identify the conditions that maintain unfair advantage, that limit accessibility or inhibit participation
Build cross-class alliances


Who is the training for:

This training is suitable for anyone working within the mindfulness field including teachers (new and established), trainers, supervisors, mentors and administrators, with an interest in exploring inequality, diversity and widening accessibility.


What is involved:

The first step in promoting equality and accessibility is to change people’s hearts and minds. Authentic human connection in a mixed-class group can be transformational for everyone. Through interactive group learning we will explore each other’s class stories with curiosity and compassion.  We will also have the opportunity to explore how classism is expressed on an organisational level and the steps that we can take to increase inclusion. 


What to bring/wear:

We recommend that you dress in layers in case the room is warm or cold.


Our trainers:

Our trainers are all members of the Centre for Mindfulness Research and Practice (CMRP) training team. All have been extensively trained in this approach and engage in a rigorous ongoing process of training and supervision. We use strict criteria when selecting teachers/trainers to work with us.
