The Science & Wisdom of Emotions Summit

May 2 to May 5, 2021

Center Founder and Director Richard Davidson will speak at the upcoming Science & Wisdom of Emotions Summit, co-produced by our friends at the Mind & Life Institute and The Awake Network Foundation.

Join His Holiness the Dalai Lama and 30+ leading scientists, including our Center's Founder and Director Richard Davidson, in exploring how to cultivate emotional well-being, work with challenging emotions, increase our capacity to love and care for others, and participate in the creation of a more interconnected and compassionate world.  

Twenty years ago our partners, Mind & Life Institute held the seminal “Destructive Emotions” Dialogue with His Holiness the Dalai Lama, exploring how we can overcome our negative emotions and cultivate our best human qualities. That gathering proved to be a catalyst for a revolution in the western conception of emotions and helped springboard the study of compassion within the scientific literature. 

Now, through the Science & Wisdom of Emotions Summit, many of the visionary scientists from the original dialogue, along with His Holiness the Dalai Lama, are gathering with a new generation of inspired voices to offer the latest scientific insights, share best practices for cultivating emotional well-being and emotional intelligence, and explore the role that emotional wisdom can play in addressing the many challenges our world now faces and the profound crisis of disconnection that underlies so many of them.
