Mindful Cultivation: Turning Passing States Into Beneficial Traits

August 4, 2016, 9:00 am - August 7, 2016, 5:00 pm
Denver, CO 80202 United States

People draw on psychological resources such as grit and compassion for coping, well-being and helping others. We develop these strengths by turning passing experiences of them and related factors into lasting changes of neural structure and function. But the brain’s evolved “negativity bias” acts as a bottleneck in this process, so that people tend to over-learn from negative experiences and under-learn from positive ones. To address this, we can deliberately and mindfully increase the depth of engagement with beneficial experiences in psychotherapy, trainings, and everyday life. As a plenary speaker, Rick Hanson will share ways to enrich and absorb beneficial emotions, thoughts, sensations, and motivations – potentially increasing their encoding in the brain – and then use these methods to grow strengths for individual needs.

This workshop brings together a team of internationally recognized scientists, meditation teachers, and clinicians to deepen our understanding of how to live a meaningful, healthy, and joyful life.

The group will also learn about revolutionary research in neuroscience that offers this hopeful message: We can change and reshape our brain to live healthier, happier lives.
