More About The Conference


Michael is founder and President of the A Mindful Society conference series held at University of Toronto. A Mindful Society’s goal is to support a large and growing movement around mindfulness and compassion within society – a movement that we are fuelling by interacting directly with those applying contemplative practices in their respective sectors.


Inspiring speakers, panelists, facilitators and conference participants interact to create a forum for exploring and shaping the ways of applying mindfulness to the current challenges and aspirations within education, healthcare, workplace, law, technology and life. Drawing on interactive workshops and cutting edge research we offer practical strategies for cultivating mindfulness within oneself and others. Our 2016 speakers line-up will be announced soon.
