is associate research neuroscientist at Center for Mind and Brain and MIND Institute at UC Davis. His main research directions are investigating effects of contemplative practice from a multidisciplinary perspective, and multisensory integration in children with autistic spectrum disorder.
Join us for a weekend to explore the benefits of practice. Meditation teacher, psychotherapist, and author Sylvia Boorstein will guide participants in an essential integration of meditation with daily life. UC Davis neuroscientist Clifford Saron will explore how remarkably adaptable (and maladaptive) we are and the difficulties and possibilities of change. He also will provide insights from basic neuroscience and the research work he leads investigating the effects of meditation practice on attention and emotion.
