Jointly sponsored by University of Massachusetts Medical School and the Center for Mindfulness in Medicine, Health Care, and Society, "Investigating and Integrating Mindfulness in Medicine, Health Care, and Society" will be held this spring in Norwood, MA. Click for the brochure [pdf].
I attended this year; the highlight for me was meeting engaged people who are involved in so many diverse projects involving mindfulness. For an example, click here . The format is that of a very standard conference: Lecture after lecture after lecture. Although you do hear about the latest research, the presentation styles are, for the most part, not brain-friendly (a bit ironic). I was exhausted by the end.
And I do recommend that, if you have an interest in the topic, you attend at least once. Attendance is a rite of passage.
