Let’s Talk about Tech…..
Really looking forward to the forthcoming Let’s talk about Tech …… webinar on January 25th 2018. This is the first in a series of free webinars that offered by the Mindfulness Centre of Excellence.
The intention is to share innovation and talk to those who are pushing the boundaries of the mindfulness space.
Sign up to the mailing list to get regular updates and hear about the great speakers we have lined up for 2018.
You can still sign up and hear from former BBC War correspondent Dumeetha Luthra about her experiences in Iraq, Afghanistan and being kidnapped. Through these testing times, she discovered personally how mindfulness and self-compassion are “super powers” that helped her to survive.
Now she wants to share her learning with others, and particularly young people.
Many of our young people live under conditions of high threat. Some of this is the physical threat of war, poverty or starvation. Much of it is manufactured by the systems we have created, psychological threat of “Am I good enough, smart enough, thin enough, rich enough, cool enough?” etc.
Either way, it is our responsibility as adults and care-takers to support and nurture the next generation. If you want the grim statistics ….. they are sobering, and it is correct to react strongly to this information. If you’ve really got courage, you can also explore the stats on the number of children prescribed pharmacological agents. There is really no need for this if we can learn to life with compassion and care for ourselves and others as our primary intention.
Dumeetha’s experience of conflict zones has inspired her to create tools to help build a different future and she will be talking about her Take-Pause VR venture. Below you can find an update form Dumeetha.
Update on Take-Pause
Our first hospital pilot has been incredibly successful.
A major New York children’s hospital is to launch a full research study testing Take-Pause for use in their pediatric toolkit .
In tandem – our team of neuroscientists and artists will start creating a series of content.
