Neurodharma of Love Workshop

August 11, 2018, 10:00 am - 4:30 pm PDT

$75 – $200

On the whole, we experience our greatest joys and sorrows in our relationships. Supported by both Buddhism and Western psychology, the keys to healthy relationships include empathy, compassion, kindness, equanimity, and appropriate assertiveness. These states of mind are based on underlying states of your brain. The emerging integration of modern neuroscience and ancient contemplative wisdom offers increasingly skillful means for activating those brain states – and thus for cultivating an open and caring heart, effective communication, balance during upsets, and more fulfilling relationships.

This experiential workshop will offer user-friendly information about Buddhism and your brain, with lots of practical methods. No prior background with meditation or neuroscience is necessary.

We will cover:

  • A summary of the Buddha’s teachings on relationships.
  • The deep pathways in your head and heart of empathy, compassion, lovingkindness, and love – and how to strengthen those.
  • Practical ways to combine strength and heart.
  • Expanding the circle of “us” to include the whole world.

There will be plenty of opportunity for questions and discussion. Teachings are appropriate for individuals as well as health care professionals. Continuing Education (CE) credit available.
