A conference promoting reconciliation through spirituality is to take place from 28th-30th June 2012.
The three-day event, aimed at academics and healers “either working in the field or wanting to develop an interest in the area” is called ‘The Cave of the Heart: Contemplation, Mindfulness and Social Renewal’.
InSpiRe Director Dr Peter Tyler says “It looks like being an exciting and innovative conference and we have already received a lot of international interest.”
The conference information reads:
The aim of this conference is to relate religious understandings of mindfulness and contemplation, especially in the Christian, Buddhist and Hindu traditions, to recent explorations of mindfulness in psychology, education, social care and business.
As well as listening to keynote addresses from leading practitioners and theorists in the field the conference will be an opportunity for participants to exchange ideas and information in a variety of formal and informal settings.
It is particularly aimed at academic researchers, theologians, contemplatives, practitioners of mindfulness, psychologists, therapists, counsellors, spiritual directors, educationalists, teachers and healthcare professionals, either working in the field or wanting to develop an interest in the area.
The conference is being organised in London by InSpiRe: Centre for Initiatives in Spirituality and Reconciliation – which describes itself as ‘Promoting a Spirituality that Reconciles’. InSpiRe is based in .
