The 3rd International Forum on Buddhism and Medicine brought together leading experts who presented the most recent research on the benefits of meditation in a wide range of medical and therapeutic settings, and in everyday life.
Nearly 1000 people attended the forum: doctors, therapists, healthcare professionals, academics, Buddhist practitioners and, of course, the general public.

Day one of the conference covered some of the latest scientific research on meditation. The Shamatha Project, for example, examined two groups of 30 meditation practitioners as they took part in three-month retreats in the United States. Many of the results are still being evaluated, but the initial findings appear to show a range of effects, such as sharpened and sustained attention, enhanced well-being and an ability to respond with more empathy to the suffering of others.

The second day focused on some of the ways in which meditation is being applied in hospitals and other medical and therapeutic settings, through programmes such as MBSR and Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT), Rigpa's Spiritual Care Programme, and the Association Tonglen, founded in France by Dr Cathy Blanc.

Speakers came together for a panel discussion and the conference delegates, many of whom were healthcare professionals, were also given the chance to take part in guided meditation sessions.
