The Mind and Life Dialogues – with the 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.
Since the first Dialogue with the Dalai Lama, Mind & Life has held 29 others that bring together scientists and contemplatives on a wide range of critical subjects: addiction, ecology, ethics, attention, neuroplasticity, destructive emotions, altruism, economics, and more. Additionally, over the past 30 years, Mind & Life’s work has extended beyond the Dialogues. The Institute has become a direct funder of individual research via its grant and scholarship programs.
In 2017, Mind & Life will present two Dialogues, including an historic visit by the Dalai Lama to Africa:
- from 17 – 19 August 2017, Gaborone, University of Botswana Indoor Sports Centre, will hold a public dialogue on the subject “Botho/Ubuntu: A Dialogue on Spirituality, Science and Humanity with the Dalai Lama”
- from 19 – 21 October 2017, Montréal, Québec, Museum of Fine Arts, will hold a dialogue, accessible on invitation, on the theme “Reimagining Human Flourishing: New Sciences of Mind and Applications in Healthcare and Education”
