Krause - Mindful by Design: ​ ​"The Danger of a Single Story"

​We contain multitudes. ​From real life to virtual worlds, modern mindful presence is all about choice and voice, encompassing curiosity​, multiplicity​ and self-awareness. We are constantly faced with the question of how to "be present”—to connect in a meaningful way.
This workshop looks at three prime focus areas: mindfulness, design thinking and storytelling.

We’ll talk about the “how” and the “why” of using practices in mindfulness and presence, as well as how technology such as virtual reality can be incorporated, to sharpen awareness, focus, creativity and design. We (as well as our ideas!) are inter-related, thriving in a network of connections, and many different layers of meaning and context.

Best of all, those of us who are “hacks and hackers”, problem-solvers and designers, adopt solutions-based approaches that keep our own minds empathetic and flexible. We begin to see, quite truly, that no human is an island. The advantage of mindful awareness and connection is core to “Mindful by Design”, with leadership, voice, and interrelated systems in focus, as we cultivate innovative mindsets.
