Upcoming Events

Rick Hanson: “The Neuroscience Behind Happiness”

MA is thrilled to welcome psychologist, Rick Hanson, Ph.D., on January 22, 2019.  Rick is a Senior Fellow of the Greater Good Science Center at UC Berkeley andNew York Times best-selling author. He has been deeply interested in the historically unprecedented meeting of psychology, neuroscience, and contemplative practice. A recurring theme in Rick’s work is the need for mental resources such as mindfulness, self-compassion, and positive emotions. We acquire these resources through embodied learning, but there has been remarkably little attention paid to the actual “how” of growing such inner strengths. Please be sure to join us for the mind-expanding evening.
Rick’s books are available in 28 languages and include Resilient, Hardwiring Happiness, Buddha’s Brain, Just One Thing, and Mother Nurture. A summa cum laude graduate of UCLA and founder of the Wellspring Institute for Neuroscience and Contemplative Wisdom, his work has been featured on the BBC, CBS, NPR, and Radio New Zealand, and he offers the free Just One Thing newsletter with 135,000 subscribers, plus the online Foundations of Well-Being program in positive neuroplasticity that anyone with financial need can do for free.
