The Power of Mindfulness and Compassion

Dr. Shauna Shapiro

 

This full-day workshop weaves together scientific research with the art of mindfulness and compassion practice to explore the frontiers of mind training in society. Mindfulness and compassion are now becoming part of the mainstream culture and have become increasingly popular in every sector of society–healthcare, education, business and government—so much so that Time magazine declared we are witnessing a “Mindful Revolution.”

Together, we will explore the latest advances in science and clinical research to effectively integrate mindfulness and compassion into our professional and personal lives. Specifically, we will learn about current findings in neuroscience, which offer the hopeful message that we can shape and sculpt our brain based on repeated practice. Specific mindfulness and compassion practices will be taught as well as essential underlying themes to be integrated into daily life. The intention of this workshop is to explore the potential of mindfulness and compassion in transforming our individual and collective lives.
