Peaceable, Friendly, and Fearless: The Benefits of Neuroplasticity


Saturday, October 19, 2019, 9:30am to 5:00pm


Harvard University Memorial Church, 1 Harvard Yard, Cambridge

We need psychological resources like grit and gratitude for resilient well-being in a challenging world. How can we grow these inner strengths?
Positive neuroplasticity shows us how to turn passing experiences into lasting changes in the brain - hardwiring an unshakable calm, compassion, and courage into the marrow of our being.

In this experiential workshop, we’ll explore:

  • Why personal growth experiences don’t have enduring value for many people
  • The necessary two steps of lasting change in the nervous system
  • Growing the key psychological resources matched to a person’s challenges
  • Managing stressors without feeling stressed
  • Bringing together kindness and assertiveness, love and power
  • Living with inner balance in shaky times

This experiential workshop, led by Rick Hanson, Ph.D., will offer lots of practical methods useful for both self-guided practice and in therapeutic settings. There will be time for questions and discussion. No background with meditation or neuroscience is needed.

Cost: $50–$175
