Neurodharma: A 10-day Experiential Exploration of the Deepest Roots of the Highest Happiness

November 5 - November 14


with Tina Rasmussen, Peter Grossenbacher, and Terry Vandiver (yoga)

The combination of modern brain science and ancient Buddhist wisdom is illuminating the embodied basis of deep experiences of present moment awareness, contentment and love, and the sense of being one with everything.

Join New York Times bestselling author Rick Hanson, Ph.D. and learn experiential methods for relaxing the contracted sense of self and resting in resilient well-being at the front edge of now.

This mainly silent retreat will include guided practices, talks, sitting and walking meditation, yoga and movement, small group meetings, and Q&A sessions. We’ll explore plausible ways to strengthen the neural circuitry of these seven steps of awakening:

  • Steadying the mind
  • Warming the heart
  • Resting in fullness
  • Enjoying wholeness
  • Receiving nowness
  • Opening into allness
  • Finding timelessness

This is an ambitious program that takes seriously the upper reaches of human potential taught by the great sages, and engages the underlying causes of these profound states of mind in the living body.

Prerequisite: As this is a serious, experientially intense retreat, all participants must have previous participation in a 7+ day meditation retreat. Additionally, this retreat is not appropriate for those with a history of bipolar disorder, complex PTSD, borderline personality, or dissociative or psychotic mental processes. If you have any questions about this, please contact us at [email protected]

Cost: $500 + 9 nights lodging

Scholarships: Ten scholarship seats will be available for this retreat.  (More information to come.)

Registration: Not open
