Join three original pioneers of the mindfulness movement—Jon Kabat-Zinn, Daniel Goleman, and Richard Davidson—for a one-time only conversation around their extraordinary contributions to mindfulness practice, meditation, and research.
The discussion will delve into the birth of this revolution, where it is today—and its potential to create a more hopeful future for individuals and our global community.
These innovators of stress-reduction and mind-body health have taken unique but complementary paths. They’ll discuss how their early passion for meditation and mindfulness led to decades of research which has helped hundreds of thousands enrich their lives and improve all aspects of their health. What inspired them to dedicate their lives to this field? What have been the biggest surprises? And how will mindfulness practice, meditation, and stress reduction evolve as we move into the future?
Moderated by David Gelles of the New York Times.
Panelists: Jon Kabat-Zinn, creator of Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR); Daniel Goleman, author of the New York Times bestseller Emotional Intelligence; Richard Davidson, a pioneering neuroscientist tasked by the Dalai Lama to study the impact that meditation has on the brain.
Event Extra: Daniel Goleman and Richard Davidson will be on hand to sign copies of their new book, Altered Traits: Science Reveals How Meditation Changes Your Mind, Brain, and Body.
