Upcoming Conference

A Labor of Love: Two-Day Instructional Intensive

Supporting MBSR Teachers with Specific and Intensive Education at the Center for Mindfulness

Learn More

After 12 highly successful years of hosting our annual international scientific conference, Investigating and Integrating Mindfulness in Medicine, Health Care, and Society , we are making some notable changes in our programming initiatives  by taking advantage of our new facility and an array of international venues being offered to us.

In October 2014, we are hosting a two-day conference at our new home, the Hoagland-Pincus Building, set on several acres of flowering trees, gardens, and walking paths in Shrewsbury, MA, a quiet suburb of Worcester.

The focus of this conference will be teaching MBSR: an instructional intensive.

Dates To Watch For:

  • In the Spring of 2015, we will be hosting the first MBSR Training the Trainers Intensive as a means of galvanizing and consolidating an international network of MBSR education, training, and research sites.
  • In the fall of 2015, in conjunction with the Fall Teaching Institute, there will be another conference held here at our new home.
  • In the summer of 2016, we are exploring a European venue for our international conference.
