McMindfulness: Ronald E. Purser in conversation

August 7 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Hear from Mindful Cranks podcast host and Professor of Management at San Francisco University Ronald E. Purser in conversation with Professor of Organizational Behaviour at Cass Business School, Andre Spicer to shine a critical light on the so-called ‘mindfulness revolution’.

Drawing on his perceptive new book McMindfulness, Purser will challenge continuing narratives about self-imposed stress. He will suggest that corporations, schools and governments have co-opted spiritual practices for social control, and will encourage us to look at the history of mindfulness in order to harness its true liberating potential.

Tickets: £14 including a copy of McMindfulness (RRP £10.99) / £8 standard / £5 Student or Foyalty member*. When purchasing a Student or Foyalty ticket, you’ll need to bring a valid in-date Student card or Foyalty card with you.
