How can mindfulness support gifted people on the journey of gifted development?
This is the guiding question we seek to answer in the GMC. For more than two thousand years, mindfulness has been adapted and modified according to various cultures in order to make the practice as relevant as possible to the experience of each particular culture. As giftedness emerges as a culture in its own right, we are exploring how robust mindfulness – the blend of ancient wisdom traditions + modern scientific advances – has been, and can be, adapted to the gifted person's unique experience and needs.
We're just getting started!
