Join Kansas City metropolitan community members from the sectors of business, mental health, education, environmental stewardship, law enforcement, religion, etc. for the next Mindful Kansas City Initiative planning meeting. We are exploring ways in which applying the skills and attitudes of mindfulness to our relationships with ourselves, others and our environment, the work we do, and our everyday lives, might offer an upstream approach to addressing some of our community’s most pressing concerns. We are operating from a belief that increasing awareness of and exposure to the practices of mindfulness can help create a paradigm shift and change in consciousness required for deep and sustainable beneficial change.
