Mindfulness Science and Practice

Format Conference
Description Mindfulness and contemplative practices increasingly are being understood and recognised as having an important contribution to make in diverse areas, including clinical practice, education and management, while knowledge is being advanced through various forms of research. Australia has professionals from numerous sectors using mindfulness based approaches in their work, and producing some world class studies on the efficacy and application of mindfulness techniques.

This conference will bring together practitioners, philosophers, educators, managers, and researchers from quantitative and qualitative traditions including many meditators and mindfulness instructors. The conference will feature international keynotes contributing clinical, research and philosophical perspectives. These contributions will feature Paul Grossman as a visiting Keynote speaker from Switzerland and Stephen Batchelor by video-conference from France. Our conference rapporteur Michael Leunig will provide creative reflections on conference highlights.

We invite you to join us for what we expect will be an exciting opportunity to recognise, affirm and extend practice, knowledge and understanding in applying a range of meditative and contemplative techniques to your work and your life and towards helping others.
