  • Guided meditation sessions with Tenzin Wangyal and others throughout each day
  • Guided Tibetan yoga with Alejandro Chaoul-Reich
  • “Lunch with Rinpoche”—a special lunchtime event where we’ll get to listen to Rinpoche and some of our presenters reflect on Buddhism and science in a more casual setting
  • Q&A session where the speakers will answer your questions
  • KeynoteSaturday, October 10, 6:00 pm (EDT) — conversation between Tenzin Wangyal Rinpoche and Deepak Chopra

When we bring our attention to our body, our breath and our mind, what happens and why? How does our relationship to sensations, thoughts and perceptions change through meditation and other energetic practices? Can science and medicine inform what and how we engage with these ancient traditions?
Join Tenzin Wangyal Rinpoche and special guest Deepak Chopra, along with leading scientists, physicians and practitioners for a live online summit running October 9–11, featuring deep conversations at the intersection of scientific and spiritual knowledge about body, breath and mind.
Buddhism, medicine, neuroscience, physics, physiology and other contemplative traditions are the heart of this online summit from Serenity Ridge Retreat Center, Ligmincha International and Wisdom Publications.
The Contemplative Sciences Center is a co-sponsor along with the Mind Body Spirit Institute of The Jung Center in Houston, Texas. Ligmincha is also partnering with Wisdom Publications that will allow the Dialogues to extend from an in-person-only event to an event that can be richly experienced online.
