To begin the new year for the Dalai Lama Center for Peace and Education Speakers Series, Dr Mark Greenberg will give a talk at SFU Harbour Centre on February 2. Dr Greenberg believes that to create a more caring and compassionate society we need to promote skills and environments that support children, their teachers and their families. He will present findings from studies nurturing mindfulness in the classroom, mindfulness in families, and a study on the effects of yoga on youth development.
