Vancouver Heart-Mind Symposium

Dalai Lama Center and partners
Saturday, January 10, 2015, 9:30am - 3:15pm

The Dalai Lama Center facilitated a symposium at Mt. Pleasant Neighbourhood House with 19 community groups from across Vancouver about Heart-Mind well-being community projects. Each group had received funding from Windows of Opportunity, Success by 6, and the Province of BC to launch community-based programs for early childhood caregivers and parents focussed on promoting Heart-Mind well-being. The symposium was designed to guide and support project development, provide research to support implementation, and ensure each program achieves the desired outcomes. Groups participating included a number of local neighbourhood houses, Vancouver Public Library branches, StrongStart Centres, Family Centres, MOSAIC and other local early learning centres.
