Rick Hanson, Ph.D. will be a guest teacher at the Cambridge Insight Meditation Center for their Friday night online program. His talk is entitled, “Resilient Contentment in Challenging Times: The Practical Neuroscience of Wisdom and the Highest Happiness.”
Mental practices aimed at the heights of human potential – what could be called “awakening” – have been around for thousands of years. Now, modern neuropsychology is beginning to reveal the underlying biological basis of these practices and higher states of consciousness. The breakthroughs of the great teachers are not reserved for the chosen few; they are available to each of us. Remarkably, we can gradually strengthen the embodied basis of unshakable presence of mind, a courageous heart, and serenity in a changing world, even in extraordinary times such as these.
Join Dr. Hanson to explore seven practices of awakening and what could be happening in the brain as we engage them – with a focus on resilient love and happiness in everyday life. These practices are for everyone, and no background in neuroscience or meditation is needed. There will be time for discussion and some experiential practice.
This special benefit event celebrates the release Rick’s newest book: Neurodharma: New Science, Ancient Wisdom and Seven Practices of the Highest Happiness. Proceeds from this benefit event will support the Cambridge Insight Meditation Center (CIMC) and the Institute for Meditation and Psychotherapy (IMP). The “Member Rate” is available for both CIMC and IMP members.
