Living Compassion Conference: Compassion in a Competitive World
March 27, 2015 (8:30 am - 3:00 pm; registration begins at 8:00 AM)
This one day conference provides NAU faculty, students, staff, and community members to learn about compassion-inspired work taking place in the NAU and Flagstaff communities. The event will be held in the DuBois ballroom on South Campus. The opening session begins at 8:30 am. Session speakers will be examining the importance of compassion in real-world issues, such as the role of fear plays in undermining compassion, the role of mindfulness in cultivating compassion for others, and how these issues are relevant to important areas of our lives, including the legal system, our personal relationships, and in coping with adversity. Please see the conference program. Over the lunch hour (along with free lunch!) there will be a poster session.
There is no registration fee. In addition to lunch, refreshments will be available all day! Student volunteers will assist students in completing sign up sheets if receiving credit for attendance.
Although the conference is FREE, NAU parking is $7 for an all day pass. For information about how and where to purchase a parking permit, see instructions about parking.
