ICM-2019

International Conference on Mindfulness (ICM) Asia Pacific

Sat, 09 Feb 2019 – Tue, 12 Feb 2019

You will find that the conference has a large variety of topics and presentations to offer. There is a well-established evidence base for the health benefits of mindfulness, and we are now showing how it can be applied in a wide range of situations. We are honoured that Professor Jon Kabat-Zinn, the initiator of modern mindfulness-based interventions, will present the principal keynote address at our conference. Our other keynote speakers have been carefully selected to showcase the variety of applications of mindfulness (such as in clinical situations and education), including in the Asia Pacific region. While aspects of mindfulness are a component of almost any spiritual and religious practice, the modern application of mindfulness practice has drawn particularly heavily from Buddhism. To provide a link to these origins, we are also actively providing a forum for Asian Buddhist perspectives to be present at our conference. Additionally, guided morning meditation sessions will be provided by local monks, nuns, or priests.
