As you may know, this is a private meeting and seating is extremely
limited, so we are very grateful to Mayo Clinic Rochester for
providing this webcast service to the public.Mind and Life XVI
convenes the Dalai Lama, scientists, clinicians, other
contemplatives, and an audience of Mayo Clinic professionals to
review the current science and clinical applications of meditation
and to identify new lines of research on and clinical applications of
contemplative practices such as meditation within medicine. New
scientific studies are beginning to show that meditation may have
specific beneficial effects for helping patients cope with certain
diseases and the stress associated with them, particularly chronic
diseases; and that biological processes underlying some of these
diseases may be effected in beneficial ways by the practice of meditation.
Talks during the morning session will include:
* A Contemplative Approach to Human Flourishing: the Short and
Long-Term Effects of Mental Training with contemplative Matthieu Ricard, Ph.D.
* Reflections on the Origination, Development, and Scope of
* Stress Reduction (MBSR) Programs in Mainstream Medicine
with Jon Kabat-Zinn, Ph.D.
* Mind-Brain-Body Interaction and Meditation with Richard J.
* Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction Programs for Patients and
Families Living with Cancer: Overview of a Program of Research with
Linda Carlson, Ph.D.
* Compassionate and Mindful End-of-Life Care: A
Relational-Contemplative Approach for Clinicians with Roshi Joan
The morning session will be moderated by Mind and Life board member
and best-selling author Daniel Goleman, Ph.D.
The afternoon session will include His Holiness the Dalai Lama's
remarks on compassion in medicine, a panel discussion among His
Holiness, Glenn S. Forbes, M.D., CEO of Mayo Clinic Rochester, Nisha
Minek, M.D., and Amit Sood, M.D. of Mayo Clinic Rochester, Daniel
Goleman, Ph.D., and Geshe Thupten Jinpa, Ph.D., to discuss the broad
range of subjects covered in the morning session, and questions from
the Mayo Clinic audience.
Mind and Life XVI will be a remarkable opportunity to share the
fruits of ongoing scientific investigations, inspired and promoted by
over twenty years of Mind and Life dialogues between contemplatives
and scientists, and to begin a conversation on these investigations
and their relevance for future science and clinical practice with a
community of the nation's leading physicians and
physician-scientists. The Mayo Clinic is an organization of
nationwide scope and global reputation in medical research, clinical
practice and education. Finding new and better ways of providing
health care is a part of Mayo's mission. With this meeting, Mind and
Life Institute brings together leading scientists and health care
professionals with contemplatives and His Holiness the Dalai Lama in
the service of forwarding that mission.
