Workshop: Steadying the Mind

Workshop: Steadying the Mind

Mindfulness is a fundamental skill in both Buddhist practice and modern psychotherapy. But to stay alive in the wild, our ancestors evolved highly distractible attentional systems – which pose real challenges to developing greater mindfulness today.

This talk:

•  Discusses how attention works in your brain, and the normal temperamental spectrum of “turtles” and “jackrabbits” at either end of the spectrum. 
•  Presents six methods for strengthening the neural substrates of mindfulness
•  Describes the neural networks of spacious awareness, and explores some ways to activate them
