When: October 2

Learn how mindfulness can strengthen relationships at a full-day seminar on Mindfulness, Connection, and Compassion, led by inspiring teachers Dan Siegel, M.D., and Shauna Shapiro, Ph.D. 

Their presentation will weave cutting-edge science into lecture, experiential exercises, and discussion, creating a day that is intellectually stimulating, emotionally rich, and deeply practical. Join us live in Berkeley or via webcast. 6 CEs available!

Transform Your Workplace through Mindfulness
When: November 13-14
Where: Berkeley, CA

The renowned speakers at this two-day conference--including neuroscientist Richie Davidson, Ph.D., and leaders who have developed mindfulness programs at Aetna, Pixar, and elsewhere--will explore how these programs are working, why, and how they could benefit your workplace. 

On day two of the program, in-depth workshops will give attendees an even more experiential, hands-on understanding of how mindfulness can be incorporated into their work lives.

CEs are now available for health and human resource professionals. For more on the significant scholarships for MBA students interested in socially conscious leadership, please contact [email protected].
