Geetanjali Basarkod is a PhD student at the Institute for Positive Psychology and Education, Australian Catholic University, Sydney. Her thesis aims to create and validate a measure of the determinants of wellbeing, with mindfulness being one of the areas of focus. The measure assesses these determinants through self-reported behaviour and the frequency and motivation for engaging in such behaviour. She is also interested in exploring the relationship between these determinants of well-being, self-compassion, and nonattachment. Her supervisory panel includes Dr Baljinder Sahdra, who has pioneered research in nonattachment. Geet will present some of this nonattachment research, as well as discuss the relations and distinctions between mindfulness and nonattachment.
