MICHAEL A. SINGER (Mickey) is the author of the New York Times bestsellers: The Untethered Soul and The Surrender Experiment. He had a deep inner awakening in 1971 while working on his doctorate in economics at UF and went into seclusion to focus on yoga and meditation. In 1975, he founded Temple of the Universe, a now long-established yoga and meditation center where people of any religion or set of beliefs can come together to experience inner peace. He is also the creator of a leading-edge software package that transformed the medical practice management industry, and founding CEO of a billion dollar public company whose achievements are archived in the Smithsonian Institution. Along with his more than four decades of spiritual teaching, Michael has made major contributions in the areas of business, education, healthcare, the arts, and environmental protection.
UF Mindfulness Day Keynote
Title: "Mindfulness as a Way of Life."
Speaker: Michael 'Mickey' Singer, author of New York Times Best Sellers The Untethered Soul and The Surrender Experiment.
Description of talk: What is mindfulness, and how can it change every aspect of your life? Becoming a more aware and conscious person is not a practice—it is a way of life. It does not take time or money—all it takes is a sincere commitment to raising oneself. Oprah said of Singer's The Untethered Soul, "It's what I give to everybody who wants to have a better life." Come find out why.
