Bridging the Hearts & Minds of Youth Conference
February 10-12, 2017
San Diego, CA
Creativity, Innovations and Challenges in Mindfulness and Compassion
We are constantly reminded that we live in a different world these days, and the challenges facing our children are daunting: bullying, obesity, technology, in addition to more longstanding problems like poverty and racial/ethnic discrimination.
Fortunately, we also live in an age of unprecedented research and clinical support for the potential of mindfulness and compassion to support all of us in meeting the challenges we face in the 21st century. The Bridging Conference has a history of bringing together leaders in the field and this year those experts will focus on sharing what is being done already and where there is promise and possibility for the future. You are invited to join us and learn together as Bridging the Hearts and Minds of Youth builds this community of dedicated and talented professionals, parents and kids.
Features keynotes by Daniel M. Levy (“Mindful Tech: How to Bring Balance to Our Digital Lives”); JG Larochette (“Mindful Hip Hop as Social Justice”); and Fiona Jensen (“Secular Mindfulness in Public Schools”).
