Several decades in, the 'Mindfulness Revolution' (Time magazine) is well underway and we might do well take stock.
The Mindful Nation Report (UK Government, 2015), has called for an across-the-board introduction of Mindfulness in the healthcare system, education, the workplace and the criminal justice system.
As Mindfulness becomes more mainstream it is triggering a critical backlash in the media. Simultaneously it is being practised by everyone - from the armed forces, the UK Parliament, single parents and golfers, to school children and those managing their mental health.
Our keynote speakers - Sharon Salzberg, Rick Hanson, Vidyamala Burch, Paul Gilbert and Lama Yeshe Rinpoche - will pick up on these themes in order to explore the frontiers of Mindfulness and the unique dilemmas that are being thrown up at this tipping point moment in history.
The conference begins at 7pm (evening meal at 6pm) on the Thursday evening and will run between 8am and 8.30pm on Friday and Saturday. The conference will finish at 3pm on Sunday afternoon.
