No mindfulness experience required.

Equanimity: An Essential Practice for Turbulent Times
with Susan M. Pollak MTS, Ed.D.

Equanimity is a skill that is taught in meditation centers and is a key component in Eastern psychology and philosophy. However, it is virtually absent from the literature in western psychology. As mindfulness and compassion enter the mainstream, this is changing. Equanimity allows us to keep our balance and sanity in difficult times and enables us to be with whatever is happening. This talk will feature experiential practice as well as theory and recent research. Ways to integrate it in clinical work will also be addressed.

Mindfulness, Compassion and Community

with Zev Schuman-Olivier, MD

As mindfulness becomes mainstream, many people seek out meditation to help solve personal problems, to enhance cognitive performance, or to optimize themselves through self-improvement, making it essential to remember that wise practice is decicated not just to ourselves but for the well-being of all. Modern innovations in group learning through mindfulness-based programs can accelerate participants' recognition of common humanity, by illuminating patterns of mental conditioning that are a widespread cause of human suffering.

In this increasingly networked world with remote wired relationships, our hearts still yearn for the deep warmth of present moment connection and the healing that can come from compassionate contact from ourselves and those close to us. Dr. Schuman-Olivier will share data about the emergence of mindfulness centers and the potential they have for catalyzing community and this kind of warm connection through mindfulness and compassion. He will describe a model for integrating mindfulness and compassion into a healthcare system as a means of cultivating diverse, inclusive, and warm community.
