Event description

Description

Mindfulness for Change Hui are a space to embody mindful community, to support each other in creating change in the world. Change is not just about creating projects: it involves things like getting clear on purpose, nourishing our wellbeing, working through obstacles that come up, sharing learnings with others in community, and many other processes that are an integral part of creation. This hui, we're focusing on celebration and healing as crucial parts of the work we do in the world.

Spring 2018 Hui Theme: Celebration and Nourishment

So much has happened since our community began in August 2016. Over this time, within Mindfulness for Change and in people and organisations throughout Aotearoa, so many amazing projects have come into being and had impact, connections have been made and deepened, and many of us have evolved both individually and collectively. Over this time, many of us have been working hard, overcoming challenges and experiencing some struggles along the way. This hui will be an opportunity to celebrate and bask in all the wholesome effort that's been put in and nourish those parts of ourselves that need some love and care. We'll be celebrating everyone - wonderful new people curious about Mindfulness for Change and people who have been part of this flourishing community.


The hui is open to everyone - even if you haven't been involved in MfC before, it's a welcoming community and we're sure that there will be things in your life worth celebrating and parts of yourself that could do with some nourishment.


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 and you would like to apply for a discounted or free ticket please email team@mindfulnessforchange.co.nz (the kaititaki group) telling us a bit about yourself and we will endeavor to make it possible for you to attend.

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.
