Mindful Monday Community Conversations - Mindfulness and Fashion

with Loraine Locke

July 15th

    Room: BSMC

    Mindfulness means paying attention to the details of what we are doing, in contrast to doing things in a habitual and distracted way.  Being mindful implies having awareness about how our actions unfold in the world and about how, unless we pay attention, we can be influenced by unspoken assumptions, wishful thinking, and concepts that we actually don’t believe.  In Shambhala, mindfulness is coupled with kindness and appreciation for humanity’s inherent wisdom and compassion.  Mindfulness is a tool for cutting through confusion so that our basic goodness can fully blossom.

    In this series, on the third Monday of each month, we will practice meditation 7:00-7:30 PM, and engage in a conversation about mindfulness applied to different areas of our life and society, from 7:30-8:30.  Each session will have a facilitator, but is meant as a time for us to share and contemplate the theme together.

    Monday, July 15 - Mindfulness and Fashion

     

    Fashion is a significant part of our consumer landscape. We don’t just wear clothes for warmth; we express ourselves and communicate through fashion. How can a mindful attitude help us in this area, and what are the environmental and other consequences of a lack of mindfulness toward fashion? Join Loraine Locke in exploring this topic.
