Event Description

The Power & Care conference, is a two and a half day Mind and Life Dialogue of leading experts with the Dalai Lama from September 9-11, 2016, at the Bozar Center for Fine Arts in Brussels.

How can power and care be fruitfully allied, and engender projects and actions that promote the flourishing of living beings and of our environment? Discover original ways of understanding human nature and social reality. Explore ways to balance power and care at individual and organizational levels.


The program includes perspectives from the natural sciences, anthropology, psychology, politics, economics and the world’s contemplative traditions.
