Save the Dates May 12 and 13

Noted author, psychologist and meditation teacher Rick Hanson will be visiting the University of Virginia on May 12 and 13.  He will be discussing his new book Neurodharma: New Science, Ancient Wisdom, and Seven Practices of the Highest Happiness at noon on May 12 in the McLeod Hall auditorium, followed by a book signing.  This is a follow-up to his first book, Buddha’s Brain. In it, he shares seven practices for strengthening the neural circuitry of profound contentment and inner peace—qualities that offer essential support in everyday life while supporting the exploration of the most radical reaches of human consciousness.  He will also be leading other events, including a workshop on May 13- more details to follow.  All events will be open to the public.

Mindful Healthcare Series:
Viewing and Discussion

In 2019, the Mindful Healthcare Summit, produced by The Awake Network and Mindful Magazine, brought together leading neuroscience researchers, mindfulness experts, and dedicated medical professionals who are making a difference in their healthcare systems, universities, and hospitals nationwide. Now, we are bringing the recordings of these talks and conversations to you!

The first Tuesday of each month, we will view a recorded segment from the summit and facilitate a discussion around the topic. Throughout the series you’ll learn evidence-based practices to improve patient care, support personal well-being and help address systemic challenges within the healthcare system.

Join us for the first screening and discussion on:
