Heart-Mind Well-Being Workshop

Join the Dalai Lama Center for a workshop dedicated to learning how to promote HEART-MIND WELL-BEING in children and youth!

Heart-Mind well-being refers to the balance between educating the mind and educating the heart. While there is a great focus in our society on academic achievement, a growing body of research shows the positive impacts of developing our hearts – the way we relate to one another – and that social/emotional development helps to improve academic success.

In our Heart-Mind Workshops we share current research, scientific knowledge, best practices and practical strategies related to the promotion of social and emotional development in children.

Heart-Mind Well-Being Workshops

We offer a series of virtual and in-person Heart-Mind Workshops that help build capacity in individuals, organizations and communities to promote the Heart-Mind well-being of children and youth. Since 2014, our Foundational Heart-Mind Workshop has been presented to dozens of organizations in British Columbia, and demand for the workshops has grown steadily.
