About the Conference
Marcus Aurelius wrote: "Our life is what our thoughts make it." Ellen J. Langer, Ph.D. used this radical piece of wisdom and forever changed psychology when she published Mindfulness for a popular audience over 25 years ago.  Over her career, Prof. Langer has created studies which explore what happens when you eliminate what she calls "mindlessness": those scripts and assumptions we make on autopilot. One of her most famous studies resulted in "turning back the clock" for a group of nursing home residents. You will think differently about aging, your work life, creativity, health, and indeed, the mind-body duality itself.

Ellen Langer, Ph.D., Professor of Psychology, Harvard University. Founder, The Langer Mindfulness institute. Author, Mindfulness; The Power of Mindful Learning; On Becoming An Artist: Reinventing Yourself Through Mindful Creativity; and Counterclockwise: Mindful Health and the Power of Possibility.
