The Foundations of Well-Being

Starts January 2017
Online

Dr. Rick Hanson’s online, yearlong program that uses science-based methods to hardwire more happiness into your brain and your life.

Check out the Greater Good Events Calendar.

In this guided, step-by-step program, Rick Hanson, Ph. D. shows you how to use the science of positive neuroplasticity to turn ordinary experiences into powerful inner strengths, including kindness toward yourself, insight into others, grit, gratitude, and self-worth.

Rick is a Senior Fellow of the Greater Good Science Center at UC Berkeley, and invited speaker at Oxford, Harvard, and Stanford universities. He’s also the New York Times bestselling author of Buddha’s Brain, Hardwiring Happiness, Just One Thing, and Mother Nurture, a neuropsychologist, meditation teacher, and very down-to-earth, practical, and warm-hearted guy.

In the Foundations program,  Rick uses the 12 Pillars of Well-Being to teach you practical, effective ways to see more of the good in your life, and grow greater calm, contentment, and confidence from the inside out.

It’s thorough, it’s deep, and it works—with insightful talks, guided practices, revealing quizzes, monthly live-streamed events with Rick, creative activities, and inspiring guest experts like Tara Brach, Jack Kornfield, and Gretchen Rubin. You also get vibrant community forums, the science behind the program, special interest areas (e.g., children, addiction) - and a money-back guarantee.

Also, psychotherapists, social workers, and nurses can receive 24 continuing education credits from PESI for just an additional $50.

You really can change you brain for the better, and in the Foundations of Well-Being program, it’s straight-forward, fascinating, and fun.

Start feeling less stressed or worried, become more mindful and grateful, free yourself from past painful experiences, and experience more pleasure and joy in daily life.

Save up to $170 if you register before January 3, 2017.
