Communities of Practice

Communities of Practice is a series of one-day events focused on self-reflection, exploration, networking and practice. 

Featuring a keynote speaker and a variety of workshops, we explore topics such as the power of the mind, genuine connection in a technological world, an anxious society and more.

The series has been organized by volunteers from Nan Tien Institute who are passionate about helping empower individuals and groups to respond effectively to the common challenges of today.
