Event description

Description

A Mindfulness Research Symposium open to the public, dedicated to Research in Mindfulness, it’s applications, approaches & methodologies. Scientific research in Mindfulness-based practice will be presented together with an exploration of how this research may impact the practical use of mindfulness as a therapeutic, scientific and wellness-enhancing approach in healthcare institutions and beyond. An area of special interest includes methods to consistently quantify the experience of the practitioner and participant, in order to incorporate these data into the ongoing exploration of the efficacy and benefits of Mindfulness.


Our Aspiration: To inspire, envision, collaborate, network, inform, support, and stimulate, research in Mindfulness. Through this symposium we will explore the approaches, applications, modalities, and methodologies of Mindfulness, and the growing body of evidence to support the application of Mindfulness-based practice to benefit wellbeing, health, self-awareness, and resilience.
