Rick Hanson, Ph.D. will present an evening workshop at the Cambridge Insight Meditation Center, titled “Science, Wisdom, and the Highest Happiness: The Practical Brain Science of Profound Contentment and Inner Peace.”
Mental practices aimed at the heights of human potential – what could be called “awakening” – have been around for thousands of years. And 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. 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 bringing this into 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.
By strengthening the neural circuitry of profound contentment and inner peace, we can cultivate unshakable presence of mind, a courageous heart, and serenity in a changing world.
Proceeds from this benefit event will support the Cambridge Insight Meditation Center (CIMC) and the Institute for Mindfulness and Psychotherapy (IMP).
Rick’s new book, Neurodharma: New Science, Ancient Wisdom, and Seven Practices of the Highest Happiness will be available for purchase and signing after his talk.
