From academics to activists, parents to philosophers, this diverse group of change-makers brings together leading research, experiential learning, and community-building all under one roof.

Cynthia Bourgeault joins voices such as Jack Kornfield and Matthieu Ricard just to name a few among many distinguished leaders in contemplative learning and practice. Please visit ISCR’s program page to learn more and register.
