Join us for an evening with renowned neuroscientist Dr. Richard Davidson as he speak about the brain and how mental training such as meditation can have positive rippling effects in society. He’ll share lessons from studying people of all ages and backgrounds, from newborns to the world’s most advanced meditators and yogis, and what the rest of us who don’t spend our lives on a meditation cushion can do to better ourselves and leverage these skills for social change. He’ll explore how the mind can change (a concept called neuroplasticity) and why scientists suspect human nature is fundamentally good.
