Possibilities and pitfalls for the mindfulness movement.

Timothea Goddard brings her extensive experience and insights to our Common Ground – Meditation in Australia forum this month. She will present on ‘Possibilities and pitfalls for the mindfulness movement – an historical, philosophical and ethical meander to shape some questions for our teaching and research practice.’
“There has been a rapid proliferation of applications of mindfulness to a range of human problems – which is exciting but also carries some dangers in terms of a lack of rigour in our thinking, our marketing, our researching and our teaching of these transformative teachings. I will explore the context of this emergence in terms of some historical, philosophical and ethical considerations, and point to some questions we can use to explore these developments and help us reflect on our own contribution to the field.”
Timothea has broad experience as a psychotherapist, educator mindfulness teacher having trained in humanistic, psychodynamic, systemic and somatic psychotherapies as well as being grounded in a range of mindfulness-based approaches. She is Director of Openground and Director of Training with the Mindfulness Training Institute – ANZ. She is a long time student of yoga and insight meditation.
