Description

DESCRIPTION

Mindfulness for Change Hui provide a space to embody mindful community and to support each other in creating change in the world. Whether that's in our family, community, organisation, or on a broader societal level. It's important to start with ourselves, but we can't stop there. No person is an island. Other people are vital for providing support, connections, skills, perspectives, and to share resources.

Auckland Region Hui #2 Theme: Creating and holding space

In our first Auckland Hui, our theme was whakawhanaungatanga: the weaving together of family or relationships. Together we had an opportunity to create our own community and explore how to facilitate more mindful change in our relationships, communities, organisations, and society as a whole. This created a whirlpool of possibilities that left people with strong feelings of wanting more.

This second Auckland Region Hui will be focussing on creating and holding space. It is an opportunity to explore the connections developed in the first hui and bring new energy into the weave. This hui is a chance to continue bringing each other’s ideas and vision for mindfulness and social change into being.

Some of what we'll be doing at the hui:

  • hear from you and other hui attendees about what you're sensing, hoping to move into or are already doing to make change in the world through mindfulness

  • enquire into possibilities for change we can make in the world together;

  • sharing kaupapa which are related to the Mindfulness for Change community such as the “Healing Healthcare”, “Mindful Nation NZ/Aotearoa”, the upcoming NZ Positive Psychology Conference and others

  • practice mindfulness together, personally and interpersonally, formally (through meditation) and informally (through sensing and responding);

  • employ 'Open Space' methodology' to collaboratively create the agenda together

  • enjoy time in the beautiful gardens and nearby native bush of Waitetuna Lodge

  • have quiet time in nature to reflect on the weekend on Sunday morning and sense into next steps

  • enjoy delicious lovingly prepared food that is focused on locally sourced and organic produce all weekend

At previous hui, we've had mindfulness and yoga teachers, doctors, lawyers, teachers, psychologists, counsellors, web developers, artists, community builders, permaculture experts, shamans, entrepreneurs, students, activists, academics, and a diverse mix of cultures, genders and ages.

Ticket pricing and koha (or the gift economy):

The organising team are doing our best to keep costs as low as possible. We are all gifting our time and as a result the ticket price covers the cost of the venue, catering, and not much more - we're not here to make a profit. We want this event to be as accessible as possible to those who feel drawn to participate, so if ticket price is a barrier email us, the Kaitiaki at team@mindfulnessforchange.co.nz telling us a bit about yourself and we'll offer you a koha ticket if we have the budget.

As a community we endeavour to grow the gift economy, and so invite participants to make a gift to our shared community - this may be a monetary amount that feels right for you to give on top of the base ticket price, or it may be a non-monetary offering to bring to the hui or share with the community in the wider world. A useful guiding principle here is respect - for us as organisers and the work we put into this event (which we offer as a gift - we pay for tickets as organisers), but equally respect for you and your own financial situation.
