The Mind and Life Dialogues began in 1987 as a joint quest between scientists, philosophers, and contemplatives to investigate the mind, develop a more complete understanding of the nature of reality, and promote well-being on the planet. Originally conceived as small, private talks between the Dalai Lama and a few scientists and scholars, the Dialogues have since grown to include large public conferences that have embraced a variety of contemporary topics including physics and cosmology, neuroplasticity, addiction, education, altruism, economics, and ethics. These Dialogues will expand as Mind and Life grows to include Europe, Asia, and beyond.
