Rick Hanson - The Self-Transforming Brain & Taking in the Good


* Recorded live at the Awakening To Mindfulness Conference, San Diego, CA., April 2009

The Self-Transforming Brain

This presentation surveys the new research on how the mind and brain change each other, exploring the neural circuits of attention, and practical methods for activating the brain states that support steady mindfulness. The presentation ends with an exploration of profound states of mindfulness, including concentration practices, bliss, and transforming insight.

Taking in the Good

Typically positive experiences flow through awareness without being registered in emotional memory (even though they may greatly outnumber negative ones), which undermines resiliency, optimism, and coping. We cover neurologically-savvy methods for mindfully internalizing positive experiences (including for children), to build psychological resources and lift mood.
