MLE Dialogues & Conferences
Mind & Life Europe regularly organizes a pan-European symposium to foster the interdisciplinary dialogue in the context of contemplative science. With this symposium, Mind & Life Europe seeks to link diverse disciplines and traditions of knowledge in order to foster an intercultural exchange between new audiences and changemakers in the area of contemplative studies and practices. For the latest MLE conference, please visit our Mind & Life Europe Calendar.
The overall aim is to bring together academics, practitioners and other interested attendees for presentations, discussions, and collaborative networking in the emerging field of contemplative studies, which can include neuroscience, clinical science, contemplative philosophy and the humanities, contemplative education, economics, and those domains of contemplative practice that relate to and interact with these fields of research and scholarship.
Dialogues with H.H. Dalai Lama
Mind & Life Dialogues are conversations between His Holiness the Dalai Lama and leading scientists and scholars, addressing critical issues of modern life at the intersection of scientific and contemplative understanding. The dialogues began in 1987 as intimate discussions and have grown to include large public and private events at locations around the world. The dialogues have resulted in a global community dedicated to a rigorous exploration of the mind.
In September 2020, MLE held a dialogue with the Dalai Lama themed "Our common Humanity amidst Uncertainty"
In June 2021, as part of our Varela 20/30 anniversaries, the Dalai Lama held a special meeting with MLE themed "Dialogue for a Better World - Remembering Francisco Varela". Watch the recording here on the MLE YouTube channel.
