Meditation Made Easier through Neuroscience

Monday, Feb 27 thru April 3

7:00 to 8:30 PM

In person and on Zoom.  Taught by Kim Weeber

Combining modern neuroscience to understand our brain, and the Buddha’s teachings to work with our mind, we can meditate more easily. 

We will draw from the work of John Yates, PhD (Culadasa) in The Mind Illuminated, as well as Rick Hanson, PhD. Their techniques include using positive reinforcement to train ourselves to be more kind, mindful and stabilize our attention. 

Learn to practice without fighting your mind’s natural tendencies! Suitable for beginners and experienced students.
