MNM operates on the ground through a variety of programs, events and services in and around Albuquerque and elsewhere in New Mexico.
The annual Conference, held in April on EarthDay, is the recurring convening of the MNM extended community of engaged citizens and partner organizations. A wide range of sessions and topics comprise the conference such as Youth Leadership, Mindful Art, facilitated programs with spiritual teachers and practitioners, social justice and community service related programs, Mindfulness applied to education, engaged practices (often outside in the courtyard) of wellness and healing arts such as Chi Gong, Improvisation classes, and many more.
During the year between conferences MNM hosts Film Nights, Mindful nature walks and training of Mindful Walk Leaders; a Free Deep Listening campaign at the Growers Markets in Albuquerque and in Santa Fe, Youth Leadership programs, Partnerships with such entities as the school-based Kindness clubs in ABQ, and Volunteer opportunities with tabling at community events, Event Planning, Management and Staffing.
All of these activities support a diverse community of mindfulness adherents who may be at any stage in their engagement with the practices of this approach to well-being, centeredness and personal spiritual growth.
|From mindful collective action emerge opportunities to transform our workplaces, our classrooms, our communities and subsequently our systems to be more humane and sustainable. Mindfulness is realizing that what happens to one of us happens to everyone.
