The latest brain research suggests ways you can help your brain enter deeper states of mindfulness, concentration, love and happiness. Suffering, joy and freedom all depend on what happens within your nervous system. Skillful practice thus means being skillful with your own brain. This experiential workshop from the Spirit Rock Meditation Center will cover the relationship between the mind and the brain; strengthening neural factors of mindfulness; the role of concentration in Buddhist practice; and practical help from brain research for steadying and quieting the mind and bringing it to singleness.
