The Wellspring Institute for Neuroscience and Contemplative Wisdom
October 26, 2014

Rick Hanson, Ph.D.
Jan Hanson, M.S., L.Ac.

Your brain is the bottom-line for how you feel and act: change your brain, and you change your life. 

In this four-hour workshop on Sunday, October 26, 2014, in San Rafael, CA (see map below), we’ll cover ten great ways to change your brain for the better – for more joy, more fulfilling relationships, and more peace of mind and heart.

Grounded in brain science, you’ll learn practical, research-based ways to:

• Feed your brain with the right foods and supplements
• Calm down the amygdala for less anxiety and other negative emotions
• Energize the neural networks of compassion, empathy, and love
• Boost acetylcholine to light up the circuits of learning and memory
• Tap into your brain’s natural core of happiness
• Increase levels of key neurotransmitters like serotonin and dopamine without medication – for improved mood, attention, and motivation
• And much, much more

This will be fun, down-to-earth, and super-useful! Your presenters are Rick Hanson, Ph.D., author of Just One Thing: Developing a Buddha Brain One Simple Practice at at Time and Buddha’s Brain: The Practical Neuroscience of Happiness, Love, and Wisdom, and Jan Hanson, M.S., L.Ac., who wrote Nutritional Neurochemistry in Buddha’s Brain.

This workshop will benefit the Wellspring Institute for Neuroscience and Contemplative Wisdom, which publishes the Wise Brain Bulletin, offers all the great resources at, and hosts the Your Skillful Means website (methods for psychological and spiritual growth). Registration is $50.

It’s happening on Sunday, October 26, 9:30 am – 1:30 pm in San Rafael, CA at the Marin Civic Center, Showcase Theatre, 10 Avenue of the Flags, San Rafael CA 94903.
