Change Your Brain by Transforming Your Mind

With Richard Davidson

Thursday, November 6, 2014
7:00 PM–8:30 PM

Renowned neuroscientist and New York Times best-selling author Richard Davidson is one of the world’s leading experts on the impact of contemplative practices on the brain and overall well-being. At the behest of the Dalai Lama to study qualities like kindness and compassion, Davidson has revealed the profound effects of meditation. The results are a rigorous scientific validation of an ancient spiritual practice, supporting the idea that meditation can “re-wire” the brain over time to elicit positive feelings more often than negative ones. Davidson will share how these practical tools for self-transformation can benefit anyone willing to try.
Presented with the Nalanda Institute of Contemplative Science
