A Humanistic Buddhist Response to Modern Crises
The Communities of Practice is a series of one day events focused on self reflection, exploration, networking and practice. The series has been organised by volunteers from the Nan Tien Institute
who are passionate about helping empower individuals and groups to respond effectively to the
common challenges of today.
Change the world by changing your world. Join us at the next Communities of Practice day.

Each day begins with an activity to focus and calm the mind and body. Mindful Movements remind us that every action we take should be done so with awareness and consideration.
Expert speakers bring a wealth of knowledge and experience to a morning keynote session with the whole community. Keynote speakers come from diverse backgrounds and include environmentalists, authors, politicians, and local and international charity founders. All embody Buddhist values of compassion, generosity and wisdom to guide a new approach.
The community then divides into smaller groups to workshop practical responses to specific challenges. Workshops are facilitated by thought leaders from the fields of Buddhism, leadership, psychology and business. These sessions allow the collective skills and insights of the community to flourish.
