In this day-long presentation, renowned teacher and best-selling author Rick Hanson will explore how mindful attention to positive experiences can cultivate happiness, resilience, love, and inner peace.
Dr. Hanson, a Greater Good Science Center Senior Fellow, will explain how the brain has evolved a negativity bias, so it's like Velcro for negative experiences, but Teflon for positives ones - which wears down health, mood, and self-worth. Drawing on the science of "neuroplasticity," Dr. Hanson will teach a simple method to internalize positive experiences in our memory systems, which can improve our mood and copying skills.
