Mind and Life: Science and Wisdom of Emotions Summit

Science & Wisdom of Emotions Summit

The Mind & Life Institute is honoured to announce the Science & Wisdom of Emotions Summit, co-produced with The Awake Network. The free online program runs May 2-5.

Join His Holiness the Dalai Lama and 30+ leading scientists and world renowned teachers in exploring how to cultivate emotional well-being, work with challenging emotions, increase our capacity to love and care for others, and participate in the creation of a more interconnected and compassionate world. Speakers include Eve Ekman, Dan Goleman, Jon Kabat-Zinn, Resmaa Menakem and Sebene Selassie.

Twenty years ago the Mind & Life Institute held the seminal “Destructive Emotions” Dialogue with the Dalai Lama that focused on how we can overcome our negative emotions and cultivate our best human qualities. That gathering proved to be a catalyst for a revolution in the western conception of emotions and helped springboard the study of compassion.

Now, through the Science & Wisdom of Emotions Summit, many of the visionary scientists from the original dialogue, along with the Dalai Lama, are once again gathering to offer the latest scientific insights, share best practices for cultivating emotional well-being and emotional intelligence, and explore the role that emotional wisdom can play in addressing the crisis of disconnection underlying many of the challenges our world now faces.

During the Summit, you will learn from the Dalai Lama and 30+ leading neuroscience and compassion researchers, psychologists, and world renowned meditation teachers including: 

Modupe Akinola, Yuria Celidwen, Richie Davidson, Sona Dimidjian, Paul Ekman, Thupten Jinpa, Dacher Keltner, Kaira Jewel Lingo, Brooke Lavelle, Matthieu Ricard, Mingyur Rinpoche, Tsoknyi Rinpoche, Laurie Santos, Michelle Shiota, and many more.

These teachers will share…

  • Cutting-edge research about mindfulness, compassion, emotion regulation, and the brain, and why many scientists believe that we are “wired for good”
  • Practices for being with your emotions fully, working with stress, growing gratitude, cultivating compassion, making emotions your ally, and more
  • A wide range of evidence-based approaches to work with difficult emotional states
  • The key role emotions and the body play in healing racialized trauma and creating a more just world

We hope you’ll join us online May 2-5. Please forward this email to any friends or colleagues who might benefit from this timely exploration!
