Positive Neuroplasticity: How to Grow Resilient Self-Worth and Happiness

Jul 21 - 26, 2019 Begins in 4 months
with Rick Hanson & Laurel Hanson

In these volatile times, it’s more important than ever to build an unshakable internal core of resilient, confident well-being. By growing the good inside and coming home to our true nature, we can find lasting happiness, self-worth and inner peace. In this experiential workshop, you’ll use recent neuroscience findings to tap into and grow inner strengths like grit, gratitude, self-respect and compassion. Each day in the morning, you’ll learn effective ways to release anxiety, hurt and anger; to heal from past painful experiences; and to rest in an open-hearted happiness.
