Using the power of modern neuroscience, informed by ancient contemplative wisdom, you can use your mind alone to change your brain for the better. Mental activity changes neural structure in a process called neuroplasticity, which gives you a great opportunity to redirect the brain, and thus your whole being. During this workshop, you will explore “self-directed neuroplasticity” for steadying the mind (a key to both worldly success and spiritual practice), cooling the fires of stress reactivity, and weaving positive experiences into the fabric of your brain and self. And as a bonus, you’ll learn about the research-based foods and supplements that optimize neurochemistry.
Rick Hanson is a leading neuropsychologist whose work has been featured on the BBC, Consumer Reports Health, US News and World Report, and elsewhere. He has been meditating since 1974.
This workshop is especially useful for those in the helping and healing professions in working with their clients and patients.
