Additional Information

Scientific evidence suggests that we can change our brains by cultivating habits of mind that will improve well-being, including happiness, resilience, compassion and emotional balance. Each of these characteristics can be shaped and modified within our brain by experience and training, as shown by the ground-breaking research at the Center for Investigating Healthy Minds at the Waisman Center, UW-Madison.

In this talk, Dr. Richard Davidson will share how using mental training to cultivate well-being can have a positive impact on happiness, creativity and productivity in the work place and at home.

A reception with refreshments will follow.
