Jonathan Schooler and Michael Mrazek
Cultivating Human Potential Through Mindfulness Research and Education
Jonathan earned his BA at Hamilton College in 1981 and his Ph.D. at the University of Washington in 1987. He joined the psychology faculty of the University of Pittsburgh as an assistant professor that same year and became a research scientist at Pittsburgh's Learning Research and Development Center. Named a full professor in 2001, he moved on to the University of British Columbia (UBC) in 2004 as professor of psychology, Canada Research Chair in Social Cognitive Science, and senior investigator at UBC's Brain Research Centre. In 2007 he joined the faculty at UCSB. Jonathan pursues research on consciousness, memory, the relationship between language and thought, problem-solving, and decision-making. He is particularly interested in exploring phenomena that intersect between the empirical and the philosophical such as how fluctuations in people’s awareness of their experience mediate mind-wandering and how exposing individuals to philosophical positions alters their behavior. A fellow of the Association for Psychological Science, he was also an Osher Fellow at the Exploratorium Science Museum in San Francisco. His work has been supported by the National Institute of Mental Health, the Unilever Corporation, the Center for Consciousness Studies, the Office of Educational Research, the Canada Foundation for Innovation, Canada's Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council, the National Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada, the Canadian Institute for Health Research, the Bial Foundation, and the Bower Foundation. He currently is on the editorial boards of Consciousness and Cognition and Social Cognitive and Affective Neuroscience. Dr. Schooler is the author or co-author of more than one hundred papers published in scientific journals or edited volumes and was the editor (with J.C. Cohen) of Scientific Approaches to Consciousness, which was published in 1997 by Lawrence Erlbaum.
Michael Mrazek, Ph.D. is the Director of Research at the University of California's Center for Mindfulness & Human Potential. Michael's research identifies innovative ways to reveal the full transformative potential of mindfulness training. He explores how much a person can change under ideal circumstances by leading evidence-based min
dfulness training initiatives and examining their impact on cognitive abilities, physiology, brain dynamics, gene expression, and well-being. Another focus of his work is deter
mining the optimal ways to integrate mindfulness into K-12 schools. Michael also designs and teaches research-based mindfulness retreats, as well as an academic course on the s
cience and practice of mindfulness. His work has been featured widely in international pr
ess, appearing in dozens of outlets including the New York Times Magazine, Scientific American, Forbes, and Men's Health.
In this session, Jonathan and Michael will cover:
- The cutting edge mindfulness research happening today.
- How the science of mindfulness can inform our daily lives, our businesses and organizations.
- How the science of mindfulness can improve our human potential and increase well-being in all areas of life.
Why Having Self-compassion Makes Us Better Leaders
Kristin Neff is currently an Associate Professor of Educational Psychology at the University of Texas at Austin.

In conjunction with her colleague Dr. Chris Germer, she has developed an empirically supported eight-week training program called Mindful Self-Compassion, and offers workshops on self-compassion worldwide.
In this session, Kristin will cover:

- How self-compassion improves coping with stress, and is a source of strength in challenging circumstances.
- The difference between self-compassion and self-esteem will be discussed, including how self-compassion avoids the pitfalls of self-esteem.
