Explore Mindfulness and Yoga in your Health, Relationships, and Work as a Path to Personal and Societal Transformation

The second annual Awake in the World is a collection of dialogues, presentations and guided meditations designed to help create a more mindful, compassionate world. At the heart of Awake in the World is a series of intimate exchanges between social visionaries, thought leaders and wisdom holders discussing their life’s work, and sharing their tools and techniques for living a meaningful life.

Learn from today’s most influential thinkers. Teachers including Susan Piver, Dr. Rick Hanson, and Jack Kornfield share their wisdom on waking up through your personal practice, relationships, work and service.

Practice in the world. The second annual Awake in the World teachers address pertinent issues around bringing practice into everyday life, including developing healthy relationships, cultivating compassion, practicing skillful communication, bringing mindfulness to the workplace, and developing the qualities of an authentic leader.
