2nd Annual Mindfulness in Society Conference

Friday, September 13, 1-7 pm
Saturday, September 14, 8 am - 4 pm
NHTI Campus, Concord, NH

NHTI, Concord’s Community College, is a leader in integrating mindfulness into higher education, and our work has attracted the attention of some of the biggest names in the field of mindfulness.  Practicing mindfulness helps people succeed academically and professionally, thrive at a personal level, live satisfying lives, and connect with themselves and others.   During this conference, we will explore how mindfulness can be used in business, health care, education, and personal relationships to benefit our lives and our society. 

Anyone with an interest in mindfulness is invited to attend our 2nd annual Mindfulness in Society Conference whether this is your first time hearing about mindfulness, you want to deepen your practice, or you are hoping to connect with others in this community to share ideas and experiences. This conference will sell out, so do not wait to secure your spot.
