In this episode I talk to Social Mindfulness teacher Mark Leonard

Mark has searched for a means to make meditation accessible to a mass audience since the early 2000s. He played a key role in establishing the Oxford Mindfulness Centre, opened in 2008, and then adapted Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy for the workplace. Crucially Mark’s focus is on Understanding mindfulness from a social perspective and in doing so designing programs to facilitate culture change in organizations.

In this Episode we Discuss:

  • Understanding why we need mindfulness in contemporary society
  • How mindfulness fosters "sovereignty"
  • And exploring 'social mindfulness'
