International Conferences

Our conferences are an open cross-cultural space providing the participants with learning opportunitis as well as creating the conditions for personal and professional growth and for building humanist-oriented community.
Harmony Institute regards its conferences as one of the main directions of its activities because together with Margaret Mead we believe that “a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it’s the only thing that ever does”. We view conference participants and presenters as the co-creators of its space, and welcome everyone who feels touched by the topics of our conferences regardless of their age, professional, ethnic, religious and national background.
During the 25 years of its existence Harmony Institute has organized more than 35 conferences on different aspects of practical Psychology. The list of our partners and sponsors includes dozens of national and international psychological associations and organizations as well as educational institutions and foundations.
For 15 years each May Harmony Institute hosted the Annual International Conference on Conflict Resolution which in different years gathered up to 450 participants from Russia and from abroad. Since 2008 its tradition has been taken over by the Annual International Conference “Self and Other: Space for Dialogue”.
We also organized ten annual conferences on Creativity in Psychotherapy, Education, Healthcare and Business, two conferences of the Russian Association for Telephonic Hotline Services and two Youth Conferences “The Ecology of War and Peace”.
Harmony conferences are known for their unique atmosphere. As one of the participants put it “The whole world with all its diversity, or rather, with the idea of diversity, is presented here in a condensed form…. For me every day of the conference was a discovery, internal or external: amazing encounters, wonderful people I’ll always keep in my heart…” Our conferences are the place to meet new friends from different parts of our planet.
