Integrating Mindfulness in Society (IM-S) is a ground-breaking, two-day conference exploring  leading applications, science and trends unfolding in mindfulness. We will engage in discussions to both deepen our learning of these areas and to build our community in the mindfulness sector. Featured at this conference will be a keynote by Zindel Segal a pioneer in the field of mindfulness.

Keynotes, panelists and inspiring speakers will create a forum to explore and shape the ways of applying mindfulness to the current challenges and aspirations within education, health care and the workplace. Drawing on interactive breakout sessions and cutting edge research they will also offer practical strategies for cultivating mindfulness within oneself and others.

Held at University of Toronto’s Koffler House (Multi-Faith Centre) and Hart House, this event will explore how to apply mindfulness in the real world, tackling these and other questions: How does mindfulness promote emotional and mental well-being? What does neuroscience suggest about the interaction between mindfulness and compassion and the brain, our relationships , and the systems within which we work? Which evidence-based programs boost mindfulness, and with what outcomes?

Attendees will engage in interactive workshops practicing research-tested mindfulness techniques and learn from leaders who have fostered mindfulness in schools, health care and  organizations. Cross-sector communication will be facilitated in a pre-conference plenary on common challenges faced by those successfully advancing best practices. Plenary leaders will consist of those currently integrating mindfulness-based applications within their respective sectors. 

Creating this community of change-agents is an essential catalyst in stimulating innovation and bringing knowledge to action. IM-S is committed to cultivating this community through a 10 year annual conference plan, offering key findings for public use and supporting community led mindfulness initiatives.

The underlying goal of the conference is to support a large and growing movement around mindfulness within Canada - a movement that we are fueling by interacting directly with those applying mindfulness in their respective sectors. The conference will provide attendees with knowledge about and insight into mindfulness-based (MB) applications so that they may identify best practices for promoting mindfulness in themselves and others, including the students or clients they serve.

(Phys.org)—Light behaves both as a particle and as a wave. Since the days of Einstein, scientists have been trying to directly observe both of these aspects of light at the same time. Now, scientists at EPFL have succeeded in capturing the first-ever snapshot of this dual behavior.
