The first International Interdisciplinary Conference was hosted by Victoria University of Wellington and the Society for Philosophy and Culture.
Covering the topic of "Mind, Body & Self", the Conference invited scholars from many different fields to present their work. Ranging from Philosophy (Eastern, Western and Maori) to Economics, Anthropology, Medical Science, Quantum Physics, Religious Studies and many more areas.
By sharing the opinions of each field, the goal was to illustrate the interrelationship between the different areas of expertise, providing a more encompassing vision.

During his 45 minutes, Swami Madhuram explained the basic philosophy of yoga, the principles, and the yogic approach to "Self".
