Greetings! We have many Mindfulness Programs beginning in October many of which are free. Visit our schedule page for details. But first I wanted to let you know about a wonderful opportunity to learn about Mindfulness from some of the great leaders in the field, right in your own home! Last month I told you about the “Creating a Mindful Society” Conference in New York City, well you can watch/listen to live stream of the keynotes and for 30 days after by registering below:
Mindfulness is a simple yet profound practice that changes lives. If you’re committed to mindful living, eager to learn more about its growing influence across all facets of society, or only beginning to discover the transformative power of mindfulness, join us on September 30 and October 1, 2011, for a historic conference on Creating a Mindful Society.
This pioneering event in New York City will feature keynote presentations by four outstanding leaders in the mindfulness field—Jon Kabat-Zinn, Richard J. Davidson, Janice Marturano, and US Congressman Tim Ryan—plus a rich program of dialogue and practice sessions. Together, we will explore all the proven, practical ways that mindfulness can transform our lives from the inside out—and help reshape society, from health, work, and family to education, leadership, and policy.
There are three ways you can participate:
Watch the FREE live video stream of each inspirational keynote session, plus mindfulness field reports, a town hall meeting, a breakout session with Saki Santorelli, and guided meditation sessions with Saki Santorelli, Michael Craft, and Melvin McLeod. To register and learn more, please visit live.soundstrue.com Purchase tickets and attend in person. For more information, please visit eomega.org/omega/mindful-society/register Watch the archived video stream at live.soundstrue.com, available FREE for 30 days after the event
