Positive Neuroplasticity and Resilient Well-Being: Growing an Unshakable Core of Calm, Strength and Happiness

Sep 23 - 28, 2018 Begins in 2 months
with Rick Hanson with Jan Hanson

The world is increasingly volatile and uncertain, so we need to develop psychological strengths such as grit, gratitude, and compassion. This unshakable core is the essence of resilience and the foundation of lasting well-being in a changing world. During this workshop, we’ll explore how to use modern neuroscience informed by ancient contemplative wisdom to turn everyday experiences into powerful inner strengths hardwired into your own nervous system.
