“How the Mind Changes the Brain”: The Compassionate Brain, Session 1

  • Oct 8, 2012 · 5:00 PM

This is an online-only weekly series of free events. See the registration information below.

I have copied this from the LA Brain & Consciousness meetup group:

The Compassionate Brain Series, Session 1: How the Mind Changes the Brain:
Session Highlights - A live in-depth conversation with Dr. Rick Hanson and Dr. Richard J. Davidson, Professor of Psychology at the University of Wisconsin and co-editor of his latest book, "The Emotional Life of Your Brain".

- How your thoughts and feelings change your brain’s structure

- Studies on compassion in contemplatives

About Dr. Davidson:

Practical Neuroscience for Transformation.
Discover the Power of Self-Directed Neuroplasticity activating the Neural Circuits of Kindness, Caring, and Love.

This is a Free online weekly Streaming Video Event Series
CE credits are available for this series!
October 8 through November 19
Every Monday, from 5pm - 6pm.

Dr. Rick Hanson presents a FREE seven-part video series—The Compassionate Brain—that explores effective ways to change your brain and heart and life.

Each week Dr. Hanson will be joined by a world-class scholar/teacher, including Richie Davidson, Dan Siegel, Tara Brach, Dachar Keltner, Kelly McGonigal, Kristin Neff, and Jean Houston. They’ll discuss different ways to use the power of neuroplasticity—how the mind can change the brain to transform the mind—to open the heart, build courage, find compassion, forgive oneself and others, and heal the world.

“Perhaps the most valuable result of our new discoveries about neuroplasticity,” says Dr. Rick Hanson, “is that it helps us bring our brain into harmony with the greatest virtues of our heart.” With The Compassionate Brain FREE video event series, Dr. Rick Hanson invites you to join him and his seven guests to explore the profound implications of this cutting-edge science—and how you can use it to guide your own transformation.

Can’t make a live session? On-demand streaming videos will be available a few days after each session’s conclusion.

CE credits are available for this FREE Online Event Series!

    No question yet, just a statement
    I just completed a Cousera course called Drugs and the Brain from Cal Tech. It was fantastic.

    An excellent presentation. I'm going to seek out the book written by the interviewee. The only problem I had was trying to join the discussion after.

    I logged in to the site and didn't detect any conversation going on. I have to leave now, but would like to plan to do it next week. Any info. prior to the webinar would help!

    Since this is a meetup group that is developed for the purpose of sharing insights and connecting with others it does not seem right for us to sit individually in our homes and watch this program. At the following link people can log in and share ideas.
