The Applied Mindfulness Conference announces it is now accepting proposals to lead interactive workshops at the second annual conference. This unique symposium brings together practitioners of mindfulness and contemplative disciplines to exchange information and ideas about extending these practices into business, organizational, and other workplace settings. Sponsored by Tail of the Tiger, the conference will be held July 23-26, 2009 at Karme Choling in Barnet, VT.

Plenary speakers and topics include:

  • David Rome (“Making Wise Decisions: Engaging the Body as a Source of Deeper Insights”). David is a Senior Fellow at Garrison Institute and former secretary to Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche.
  • Mary Campbell, RN, MSN, CNS-BC (“Mindfulness, Healing and Healthcare”), is a Clinical Nurse Specialist in Psychiatric and Mental Health Nursing and Adjunct Professor of Nursing at Dalhousie University.
  • Michael Baime, MD (“Mind, Neuroscience and Mindfulness Meditation”), is director of the University of Pennsylvania Stress Management Program.
  • In addition to the three plenary speakers, the conference will include a number of workshops. These 60-90 minute break-out sessions will allow participants to share experiences and methodologies in specific areas.

    The conference planning group conducted a Shambhala-wide survey in November 2008 inquiring about Shambhalians’ interest and activities in applying mindfulness outside of traditional environments. The areas of education, therapy, counseling and coaching, health care, business, social action, and organizational development ranked highest among respondents.

    “We hope to receive proposals from a variety of areas. Naturally, we are open to other areas of interest, and also intend to include additional workshops that will be identified at the conference using open space technology; so even if a proposal isn’t selected before the conference, open space technology allows group wisdom and interest to identify others for presentations.”
    – Tail of the Tiger Development Director, Patton Hyman
