The Compassionate Brain

Announcement | September 11, 2012

A free streaming video event series on the power of self-directed neuroplasticity

Sounds True and Dr. Rick Hanson are presenting a FREE 7-part video series with extraordinary guests that will give you effective ways to change your brain and heart and life.

The event begins on October 8, 2012 and continues for seven Monday nights at 8-9 pm Eastern time (GMT -4) each night. Each event will feature Dr. Hanson and a world-class scholar/teacher including Richie Davidson, Dan Siegel, Tara Brach, Kelly McGonigal, Kristin Neff, Jean Houston, and the Greater Good Center’s own Dacher Keltner. They’ll discuss different ways to use the power of neuroplasticity—how the mind can change the brain to transform the mind—to open the heart, build courage, find compassion, forgive oneself and others, speak and act from both kindness and strength, and heal the world.

You can watch live or see the archived videos if you miss a session. Please visit http://live.soundstrue.com/compassionatebrain/ for more information and to register for the event.
