About this event

Conference Partners

This event is a partnership between The Canada Center for Transformative Social Change ( CCTSC ) and TNO, the Neighborhood Organization (TNO ).


The Covid pandemic, high poverty rate, inequality, and the economic recession we pass through as global citizens created challenges for individuals, groups, and communities across the globe, including our Canadian society. As individuals, organizations, and a society, we face increasing challenges, including a lack of social cohesion, maintaining social solidarity, and practicing healthy healing practices to address our daily psychological and social stressors. Furthermore, we are still behind in addressing the issues of indigenous people and minority groups in our society and the problem of economic inequality. This conference will discuss the individual, community, organizational, national, and global healing strategies that might effectively address these and other issues.

Applications and Benefits:

This conference will address how Mindfulness and other healing practices can assist in overcoming societal and psychological strains. Some of the issues discussed have been ongoing, while others are new or have been exacerbated by the Covid pandemic. This conference aims to raise awareness of the importance of Mindfulness and other healing practices in dealing with mental health and societal challenges we face daily. Although this conference will include a wide diversity of experts in many fields, it will empower the participants to undertake their critical thinking and apply concepts and practices to their unique work situations and daily routine.

Here are some of the potential benefits of this conference: participants can gain some knowledge about mindfulness practices and techniques to deal with stress, anxiety, trauma, and more. In addition, professional participants will learn about recent research in mindfulness studies and strategies for combing emotional, mental, physical, and spiritual healing. Furthermore, all participants will explore the benefits of traditional practices from different cultural lenses and learn about specific innovative holistic programs.

This conference is an opportunity to share experiences and insights about Mindfulness and other holistic practices, promote critical thinking, and develop strategies for individuals, communities, and community-based organizations to deal with mental health and societal challenges.
