Developing Resilience through Applied Mindfulness (DRAM) 2: The Neuroscience of Mindfulness

November 16, 2018 @ 9:00 am - November 17, 2018 @ 4:30 pm

Through this course, participants will:
• Gain an understanding of basic neuroscience in relation to mindfulness
• Explore the impact of neuroscience research on our understanding of mindfulness, compassion, self-regulation and attunement
• Experience mindfulness practices designed to deepen our body-brain integration
• Discuss the practical application of compassion and attunement in personal and professional life

About the Course:
Neuroscience is providing new insights into how our brain
functions and influences how we think, feel, act, learn and
New research shows that mindfulness practices can
effectively enable learning by developing the skills of
attention, intention and reflection; enhance mental health;
promote healthy relationships and communities; and
manage stress/compassion fatigue.
Through a combination of lectures, small group discussions
and meditation practices, this workshop will explore how
emerging neuroscience research informs our
understanding of mindfulness, and how mindfulness can
be used to enhance teaching and learning, and promote
therapeutic presence with patients, clients and colleagues.
