Launching our book, with Rev Dr Joanna Collicutt (Ripon College, Cuddesdon) & Dr Miguel Farias (Coventry University)
On Saturday 1st April we will be holding an event to celebrate the publication this year of the BACiP book, Being Mindful, Being Christian: a guide to mindful discipleship. Rev Dr Joanna Collicutt, theologian and neuropsychologist, will be addressing the content and intention of the book as a contribution to the church’s view of mindfulness, and Dr Miguel Farias, Reader in Cognitive and Biological Psychology at the University of Coventry, will speak on ‘Do Christians need mindfulness?’. Following the publication of his book The Buddha Pill, in 2015 Miguel was dubbed the Richard Dawkins of mindfulness by the popular press for his critical approach to the subject. The half-day conference promises to be an interesting and diverse discussion of the subject. Please do join us.
We will be gathering at KingsGate Community Church. KingsGate is a high quality conference venue with ample parking, a short taxi ride from Peterborough station. The day costs £50 for members, £60 non-members and £25 for students. Both books will be available for purchase on the day.
DATE: Saturday 1st April 2017
TIME: 11am-4pm including lunch
VENUE: KingsGate Conference Centre, 2 Staplee Way, Peterborough, PE1 4YT
