Serenity Ridge Dialogues 2020

A live online summit at the intersection of spirituality & science

Explore the frontier where Buddhism and science meet

Join spiritual and scientific leaders from around the world to discuss how science and spirituality bridge our human experience and inform our practice.

October 9–11, 2020

Featuring Tenzin Wangyal Rinpoche, Deepak Chopra, and Mingyur Rinpoche

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 official summit will then run October 9–11, entirely online via live Zoom webinars.
