Beginners Mind! Transforming Healthcare Education

“If every 8-year-old in the world is taught meditation, we will eliminate violence from the world within one generation.” Dalai Lama. There is growing scientific evidence supporting the use of practices such as meditation and mindfulness to increase health and wellbeing and transform how we approach health and care, teaching and learning. We’ll explore innovative new approaches and technology solutions to help teachers and students, physicians and patients connect with transformative practices.
