European Solidarity Centre in Gdańsk
The aim of the conference we would like to invite you to is actually to give a sense of this social dimension of mindfulness and related phenomena and interventions, as well as to reflect together on the prospects of deepening its transformative potential in Poland.
In this context, the choice of the conference venue has not been accidental. We wanted it to take place at the European Solidarity Centre, a place that symbolises and illustrates the ethical values and activities that have been at the root of this remarkable social movement in Poland.
These universal ethical values and activities are also the foundation of the practice of mindfulness, understood in a deeper way than its simplistic version, popularised by the media and sometimes referred to as McMindfulness.
On behalf of the conference organisers and the Mindfulness Development Foundation,
