Keynote speakers for the main event (11-13 February) include Associate Professor Craig Hassed (opening keynote with the topic 'Mindfulness: the hype, the hopes and the fears'), Associate Professor Tish Jennings ("Building a peaceful world with mindfulness and compassion in education"), Professor Emeritus Jean Kristeller ("Creating a mindful relationship with our food and our bodies: the principles and practices of MB-EAT"), Venerable Chwasan (Asian Buddhist perspective on mindfulness practice), and Dr Tony Fernando (Mindfulness and compassion).
