Integrate the latest brain science research with the ancient wisdom of contemplative practice. Discover practical methods for improving mindfulness and concentration, calming the heart, weaving positive experiences into your brain and your self, and then bringing these new strengths into your relationships with both kindness and assertiveness.
Combining fascinating information, group discussions, and optional experiential practices, explore:
  • How your mind alone can change your brain for the better
  • The brain's evolved negativity bias: Like Velcro for bad but Teflon for good
  • How to take in the good: turning good moments into a great brain
  • How to use the power of positive experiences to clear old pain
  • How to come home to natural peace, happiness, and love
No previous experience with meditation or neuroscience is needed.

Dr. Rick Hanson, PhD, is a neuropsychologist, teacher at universities and meditation centers around the world, and author of Buddha’s Brain: The Practical Neuroscience of Happiness, Love, and Wisdom.
