The Power of Awareness: A 7-Week Online Mindfulness Training Program

Join Jack and Tara Brach for a 7 Week Mindfulness Training to Cultivate Clarity, Compassion & Well-Being.

Two of the most experienced and celebrated teachers in the West, Jack Kornfield and Tara Brach have founded major meditation centers in the United States and have each been teaching for more than forty years.

During the upcoming program, Jack and Tara guide you on an inner journey that will weave lighthearted stories, inspiring quotes, and inner practices to illuminate and deepen your understanding of mindfulness.

This training can help you enhance your relationships, your work and your inner and outer life.

Sharon Salzberg at Mind & Life Institute CONTEMPLATIVE STUDIES SYMPOSIUM @ Mind and Life Institute
Nov 10 – Nov 13 all-day
Sharon Salzberg at Mind & Life Institute CONTEMPLATIVE STUDIES SYMPOSIUM @ Mind and Life Institute

Join us 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 our understanding of the mind, reducing human suffering, and enhancing our well-being.

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. The Mind & Life Institute’s International Symposium for Contemplative Studies brings together scientists, scholars, artists, and contemplatives to explore clinical science, philosophy, humanities, education, economics, the arts, and other domains. These distinct, though overlapping, fields of research and scholarship focus on advancing our understanding of the human mind and how training the mind through contemplative practices can lead to valuable insights that promote a reduction in suffering, enhanced health and cognitive/emotional functioning, and increased social harmony. It has become clear that a multidisciplinary integrative approach is critical for understanding the mind and its effects on health, ethical behavior, and society at large.

What you’ll find at ISCS:

  • Keynote lectures
  • Main stage presentations
  • Panel Discussions
  • Poster Presentations
  • Contemplative Artists
  • Contemplative Practice Sessions
  • Opportunities to share and connect
  • Social events
