Four organizations intimately involved in promoting mindfulness brought together 500 participants from across the continent to hear the presenters, while 5,000 around the world watched online. What was truly impressive was the diversity of the environments in which mindfulness functions and contributes to their success. They included:
- Youth programs in high crime communities
- Leadership programs in international corporations
- The U.S. military
- Financial advisors
- The U.S. Congress
- Judicial system (lawyers and judges)
Written synopses of the talks are also available for interested readers.
