Coming in June 2022…


Elevate Your Leadership

Improve Your Workplace

Transform Society

Discover What’s Working. . . Get Inspired By What’s Possible.

Join 40+ presenters to learn proven, practical ways that mindfulness and compassion can help each of us in our own lives.

Explore the powerful roles mindfulness and compassion can play in developing exceptional leaders, creating happier, healthier and more productive workplaces (even if your workplace is at home now), and transforming society.

How You Can Benefit from the Summit


There’s a shift underway in leadership, as more leaders are discovering the important benefits of mindfulness and compassion

  1. Today’s fast-paced and uncertain times call for leaders to have minds that are incredibly focused and clear. How can you train your mind to dramatically improve the way you lead?
  2. What does it mean to be a compassionate leader? And how does compassion help make you a more respected and effective leader?
  3. There’s an emerging movement of employees who are looking for more meaning, happiness and connectedness at work. How can leaders help meet those needs?
  4. How do leaders evolve to become more people-centered, as more and more employees are unwilling to accept a purely top-down approach at work?


Improving well-being at work leads to happier, healthier and more productive employees

  1. Hear about the latest science showing how effective mindfulness and compassion can be at enhancing well-being.
  2. Discover how organizations are implementing mindfulness and compassion programs. Learn from leaders who are doing it successfully.
  3. What does a Chief Mindfulness Officer do? What about a Director of Compassion?
  4. How do workplaces improve team performance through improved collaboration, innovation and resilience? And how do mindfulness and compassion help?
  5. How are organizations creating more people-centered workplaces? And why is this so important?


Focusing on social impact and personal development

  1. Learn important practices that can help you live with more awareness, insight and open-heartedness. What effect can that have on your family, relationships, community, and the world?
  2. What are some of the important ways mindfulness and compassion can help transform society? Up-close looks at what’s working in racial justice, social activism, schools, health care, community life and more.
  3. There’s a growing movement towards bringing mindfulness and compassion to children and youth, including at schools and at home. Take a look at programs that are benefitting the next generation.
  4. Social activism often leads to stress and burnout. How can mindfulness and compassion help? How can they change the way people with opposing views talk to each other and work with each other?
  5. Our planet needs healing. How can acting with compassion bring people together to solve the climate crisis?
