Join us for a night to explore practical steps towards being a mindful consumer as we discuss themes of self-care, sustainability and consumption. An event designed to give you concrete actions, that can take you from living mindlessly to more mindfully. We will uncover how mindfulness within ourselves affects our global community and how to take charge over your space on this planet.
Dora Kamau, founder of Bliss Your Heart and self-care advocate will be exploring the practice of self-care and what it means to be mindful about what we are consuming -- not only with our mouths and wallets, but also with what we see, hear and speak.
Marina Jenkins, an Eco-Communicator and creator behind @Blackberrytrees will be discussing consumerism on an community scale. She will be guiding attendees through how we can take charge of our space on this earth and become aware of our actions and mindset that affect our greater society.
What to expect:
- In depth conversation and exploration on consumerism and mindfulness
- Guided activities and prompts to create individual concrete action plans
- Plant-based refreshments and treats
- Chance to win 1 of 5 door prize giveaways from local, mindful businesses
- Opportunity to connect with other participants
