• BC Mindfulness Summit

In partnership with BCALM

The British Columbia Association for Living Mindfully (BCALM) is a non-profit society dedicated to facilitating increased mindfulness and reduced stress in homes, schools and workplaces throughout BC. 

The BC Mindfulness Summit

We are now planning the 2022 program. More information will be coming soon. 

The BC Mindfulness Summit is an annual weekend educational event for community members and health and helping professionals to develop and enrich their personal and professional mindfulness practices. Participants who already integrate mindfulness facilitation into their work and everyday life, as well as those who are curious about how to develop these skills, will benefit from this opportunity to learn from a group of innovative and seasoned mindfulness practitioners.

Developed in partnership with the British Columbia Association for Living Mindfully (BCALM), the BC Mindfulness Summit includes a panel discussion, plenary presentations and experiential workshops to support the embodiment of a mindfulness practice and provide tools and resources to facilitate mindfulness in a professional setting. There will also be opportunity to practice yoga to replenish and connect.
