Good Society Series: A peaceful society or a docile one? The impact of meditation

Barry Spivack
It is generally accepted that Transcendental Meditation increases energy and inner peace on the individual level, but can it produce a similar effect on society?

The seminar will offer an opportunity for lively debate.  This event is part of the series of ISR’s ‘What Makes A Good Society?’ sessions which are intended to engage the public, professionals and practitioners as well as academics.

Evidence Network for Renting – Inaugural Conference:

‘Renting in 2020 and Beyond: Development of a Shared Research and Policy Agenda’
We are sadly announcing the postponement of our inaugural conference until early 2021 (new dates to be confirmed). Covid-19 has affected everyone, and to ensure the safety of attendees and speakers, we feel that it is best to postpone until we have more certainty over safety. Postponed to 2021
