The Premier Meeting for Contemplative Studies

The Mind & Life Institute’s International Symposium seeks to encourage and help shape a cohesive interdisciplinary field of contemplative studies in which basic and applied science, scholarship, education, the arts, and contemplative traditions collaboratively develop an integrated way of knowing.

Join Mind & Life for four exciting days as we gather the most innovative thought leaders and present their ground breaking research in neuroscience, psychology, clinical science, the humanities, philosophy, and education—all with the goal of advancing understanding of the mind, reducing human suffering, and enhancing well-being.

Featuring more than 20 speakers, including Richard Davidson, Ph.D., Matthieu Ricard, Thomas B. Coburn, Ph.D., and more.
