A Mindful Society 2018: From Curiosity to Compassion

Join me at the University of Toronto for A Mindful Society 2018:  From Curiosity to Compassion, May 25-27, 2018

A Mindful Society is an annual forum to explore the application of mindfulness in life.

A Mindful Society began in 2014 as a conference where academics and industry professionals shared ideas that cultivate compassion and community through contemplative practices.

Today, the conference is a knowledge-exchange hub – a premiere resource for mindfulness integration across the fields of education, healthcare, technology and more. A Mindful Society has grown to become the Canadian gateway into the national and international community fostering mindfulness in all sectors of society.
