Wise education includes the heart as well as the mind. Modern neuroscience confirms the power of training in mindfulness and compassion: to foster emotional balance, increase focus, promote self-care and well-being, reduce stress and transform your life. Please join us for an evening of stories, trainings and practices that can serve you in every circumstance.

Jack Kornfield PhD is one of the foremost teachers of mindfulness in the West. Trained as a Buddhist monk, he is also a psychologist, founder of Spirit Rock Center, and author whose books have sold over a million copies.

Note: In preparation for this special event, there will be faculty-led book discussions of Jack Kornfield’s “A Path With Heart”.  On Wednesday, 11/4, Stanford faculty and senior teachers in Law, Medicine and Religion, will encourage meaningful discourse of the book’s messages as well as explore ways to apply the messages in one’s personal and professional life as a student, faculty or staff.
