Event description
We are thrilled to invite you to our 6th annual conference, A Mindful Society 2020: Our Present Future.

About this Event

The creation of a more mindful, compassionate, sustainable future is within reach - perhaps now more than ever - and it is up to us.

A Mindful Society is a live conference and events organizer for professionals, organizations, and the curious interested in applying mindfulness to work and life.

Join us.

About the Conference

The Keynote: On Saturday, May 2nd, Dr. Hanson will speak on ‘Courage and Compassion: Living with a Strong Heart in Challenging Times’ He will teach us how to develop courage to face hard facts, and keep going when it’s stressful or scary using positive neuroplasticity to weave grit, self-worth, and confidence into your nervous system.

The Pre-conference Workshop: For a deeper dive into Dr. Hanson's ground-breaking work, join us for the full-day Pre-conference Workshop, 'A Neuropsychology of Awakening: Healing and Practicing with the Brain in Mind', on Friday, May 1st - part of the 4-Day FULL ACCESS pass.

For more information on these workshops specifically, please see our website >>>
