Dr. Rick Hanson comes with an Intensive three day workshop. Join this New York Times bestselling author for a deep experiential exploration of positive brain change – the essence of self-reliance and lasting inner strength and peace in a topsy-turvy world.
The Positive Neuroplasticity Training (PNT) teaches you how to take charge of the structure-building processes of your brain – actively inclining it towards happiness through the Taking in the Good process. By taking positive experiences, absorbing them fully, enriching them, and linking them with negative material, you can heighten their absorption and actually direct the growth of your own brain – so you can better manage stress, deal with life’s challenges, and have more to offer others!
This workshop explains powerful methods for turning passing experiences into lasting inner resources like self-compassion, mindfulness, grit, gratitude, and self-worth. It focuses on learning a fundamental psychological skill: the conversion of beneficial experiences and beneficial mental states into underlying neural traits.
You will learn how to activate positive experiences, prolong and enrich them, and then heighten their absorption into emotional memory. The active internalisation of positive experiences helps us grow inner strengths, leading to psychological resources that can help with anxiety, depression, anger, addiction, disappointment, loss, loneliness, and shame – while supporting well-being, effectiveness, satisfying relationships, emotional healing, and spiritual practice.
