Public Talks

After public talks, I often hear from people that they feel inspired to think and move differently through their lives, especially when making big choices. Exactly why or how seems to vary as much as the topics I cover—whether it’s related to home life, relationships, psychology, politics, or the environment.

I give a wide-range of intimate talks to audiences in various cities on topics that include bringing mindfulness and meditation practice into daily life, mental health, and social change. These talks are hosted by venues ranging from yoga and Buddhist centres to universities.

Most of these talks are available to you via the Dharma Talks with Michael Stone podcast.

I also give professional development talks for companies, conferences, and clinicians. If you’re interested in inviting me to be a speaker for a public or private talk, please get in touch via the Contact page.
