The MAP: Mindfulness - Awareness - Presence
Mindfulness is both a way of being, and a set of practices. Modern mindfulness goes beyond simply a way of focusing and de-exciting the mind/body (although that is helpful). When we consider the basis of awareness, and the embodiment of authentic presence, the MAP becomes a handy guide for getting where we want to be.
David Perrin is a meditation mentor and friend to students, trainees, and fellow instructors. Collaborator, syncretist, facilitator of circle in its myriad forms, David articulates the multiplicity of meaning encompassed by a modern practice of mindfulness. As creative arts therapist, social venture business co-owner, philanthropist, partner, and father, David is passionate about infusing all locations with the ‘mindfulness 3.0’ of our time. Director of MNDFL Teacher Training, original Head Teacher of MNDFL Greenwich Village, and co-founder of MNDFL Ed. school-based program, David co-created the MNDFL Certificate and Training program with Reverend angel Kyodo Williams. Mindfulness that is beyond binary, celebrating multiplicity and intersectionality, imbued with justice and anti-oppression is the mindfulness for all of us.
