Virtual Retreat: Neurodharma 2-Day Online Retreat with Dr. Rick Hanson

Throughout history, people have sought the heights of human potential – to become as wise, strong, happy, and loving, as any person can ever be. And now, thanks to recent science, we’re finding how these remarkable ways of being are based on equally remarkable changes in our own nervous system.

Join New York Times bestselling author Rick Hanson, PhD to learn how to strengthen the neural circuitry of deep contentment and profound inner peace. Based on teachings from his new book Neurodharma: New Science, Ancient Wisdom, and Seven Practices of the Highest Happiness, this experiential workshop will provide you with methods for cultivating and embodying unshakable presence of mind, a courageous heart, and serenity in a changing world.

Learn how to handle stress, heal old pain, feel at ease with others, and rest in the sense of your natural goodness, when you learn how to embody these seven steps of awakening in your daily life:
Steadying the mind
Warming the heart
Resting in fullness
Enjoying wholeness
Receiving nowness
Opening into allness
Finding timelessness

This workshop includes guided practices, talks, and Q&A sessions and is accessible to anyone, with no background in meditation or brain science required.
