Breath, Body, and Brain: The Neuroscience of Mindfulness
About This Event
The brain may be the most complex system in the known universe, and staggeringly, this three-pound organ appears to give rise to you — your thoughts, feelings, fears, and hopes. The brain is a system that is shaped by interaction, context, and surroundings, and even its own thoughts. Many studies demonstrate that the practice of mindfulness may cause significant changes in the structure and function of the brain in areas involved in introspection, bodily awareness, and compassion.
In this day retreat, we will deeply explore this profound concept in numerous ways, including how the brain and mind can be cultivated toward enhanced understandings of ourselves, what surrounds us, and the nature of our relationships. The day will be highly experiential with numerous opportunities for reflection, and will involve presentation as well as periods of quiet meditation, small group discussion, and moments of spontaneity, active engagement, and play

As always, a delightful evening!. Thoughts: 1. May want to publish an agenda in future. Not wise to be fashionably late. Reports were that the event was in full swing at 6:30 PM and 6:45 arrival felt like we were catching up. 2. Would be wise to provide the wifi information so everyone could connect for the text fundraiser. Verizon worked but several people near me said that they could not connect using ATT. The wifi would allow everyone to connect See you next year!!

The Copper Beech Institute offers a wide variety of courses, meditations, workshops and is housed on a beautiful peace of property. I enjoy the Wednesday Candlelight Meditation as a group or 30-40 of us meet to share this mindful experience and are led by the incredible Miranda who always gives a talk that seems to hit home. This place is filled with such love and kindness. Go check it out!
