A gathering for NZ mindfulness facilitators and teachers

NZ Mindfulness Facilitators and Teachers Meeting

Saturday 14th and Sunday 15th March 2015

 Day of mindfulness practice Friday 13th March (optional)

You are invited to attend a meeting of those teaching and facilitating mindfulness throughout New Zealand. We are fortunate to have a wide range of attendees including those with experience in traditional mindfulness practices, and those teaching mindfulness with children, in mental health settings, in business and with the general public.

Come, meet and share with colleagues and friends and help to build the community in New Zealand.

The meeting offers a venue for discussion of the challenges of working with mindfulness based approaches in a range of settings, and is also suitable for those with limited experience who wish to learn more about these issues.

The meeting:

Some of the aims of meeting is to get to know each other, become aware of how mindfulness based approaches are being developed in New Zealand, to share information regarding training opportunities and to discuss issues relevant to this work. The meeting will be focused on discussion, and while we have a range of speakers arranged presentations are designed to be brief, both providing information and offering a starting point for discussion.

Our speakers include:

  • Grant Rix – of the Mental Health Foundation of New Zealand
  • Stephen Archer
  • Glenn Wallis (Roshi)
  • Brendan Sillifant
  • Jim Hegarty
  • Glenda Irwin
  • Heidi Douglas
