Mindful Communication and Development Reporting (13-14 April)
April 13th, 2017
BMF conducted a two-day of ‘Mindful Communication and Development Reporting’ workshop for 25 journalists (12 male and 13 female) who included reporters and editors. The highlight of the workshop was the application of the Noble Eightfold Path to ethical journalism practice. The participants took away some important reflections: Right View, Right Intent, Right Conduct, Right Living, Right Effort, Right Mindfulness, Right Concentration. It simply informs that core human moral principles from key religious teachings like the Noble Eightfold Path could form the basis of a more relevant and broadly applicable model for the practice of ‘mindful journalism’.
