Live Conversations Offering Wisdom for Our Time

Join Mind & Life for our monthly online series that brings together thought leaders and contemplatives to engage with one another and the audience in exploring the role of the mind in human flourishing. At a time of profound global crises, we’ll be looking at how science and contemplative wisdom can inform efforts to build a more just, compassionate, and inclusive world.

Each heartfelt conversation will include a guided meditation and artistic offering, and inspire us with a call-to-action to be a force for positive change. A recording of the event will be made available afterwards.
