2015 conference

Our next major international conference is the 2015 Mindfulness in Society conference which will be held at the Crowne Plaza, Chester, UK on 3 - 7th July.

Once again, we have great pleasure in bringing together leading experts in the field of mindfulness, combining a rich and varied programme that includes workshops and current research as well as world class keynote speeches. Speakers and events for 2015 include:

  • Dr John Teasdale who will offer a one day pre-conference institute "Understanding Mindfulness, the Transformation of Suffering and the Awakened Heart/Mind"
  • Professor Mark Williams who will lead "A day of Mindfulness Practice and Dialogue" on Sunday 5th July. At the heart of the conference, this day provides a chance for you to make a deep connection with your personal practice.
  • Christina Feldman, Tony Bates and Saki Santorelli will each present a keynote.
  • Special Interest Groups covering a range of areas including mindfulness and compassion, mindfulness for families, a Death Cafe and the role of mindfulness in the criminal justice system.
  • Current research will be presented in the form of talks and a poster session where you can meet the researchers and discuss their work.
  • An opportunity to "Meet the author" of published books and have your questions answered and your book signed.  
  • Musical entertainment on Saturday and Sunday nights and a chance to share your own music - bring along an instrument! 
  • A celebratory conference meal on Sunday evening with a pre-dinner talk from Ruby Wax. 

We hope you will agree that this year promises to be an exciting and full event.
