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 explore the transformative effects of meditative practices. Participants will be taught simple yet potent meditation practices, and will also learn about revolutionary research in neuroscience that offers this hopeful message: We can change and reshape our brain to live healthier, happier lives.
