This workshop brings together a team of internationally recognized scientists, meditation teachers, and clinicians to deepen our understanding of how to live a meaningful, healthy, and joyful life. Weaving together ancient wisdom traditions with modern neuroscience, we’ll explore the transformative effects of meditative practices. We will explore simple yet potent meditation practices, including mindfulness meditation, compassion practices, mindful movement, and experiential exercises.
