10th Global Conference on Buddhism: Buddhism, Neuroscience & Mental Health: Making a Mindful Connection

Ajahn Brahm, James Austin and more
presented by 10GBC Connect

"We are living in a society that is becoming increasingly aware of acts of violence and hatred bred by intolerance. How can we build a less violent and more compassionate society for our children and their children in the future? How does the practice of mindfulness improve physical and mental health?

We can no longer hide our feelings entirely. Scientists are now using fMRI scans to study the brain activity underlying our thoughts and emotions. Continuing a tradition of expanding the role of Buddhism in modern society, in this conference you will have the opportunity to listen to some eminent speakers around the world who can elucidate the connections, opportunities and requirements for Buddhist thought, technique and philosophy in improving the life and, in particular, mental well-being of society through mindfulness.

Our experts in both the Buddhist and the scientific communities will make a collaborative effort to explore this question deeply, and to find common ground on how we can strive to alleviate human suffering. Please join us for this important conversation.
