We all know how important it is to take care of our bodies. It seems everyone has a gym card these days. But what about taking care about our minds and brains?
In a time where depression, burnout, anxiety, and distraction is increasing, is there a way to become more balanced, calm, focused, and kind to ourselves and others? The good news: There is!
We live in a very exciting time where modern neuroscience has been able to show the effects of techniques for training the mind that has been around for millenia. The World Health Organization is now promoting meditation as one of the most important ways to promote mental health. Mindfulness has become mainstream. Training the mind is becoming as important as training the body.
We all want more kindness, calm and joy in our lives. We all want to be able to handle difficult emotions. All it takes is the right attention and effort. We teach you methods that combine authentic Buddhist techniques from the lineage of the Dalai Lama, with methods that neuroscience has proven to positively affect the brain.
What we do
We offer secular courses and techniques, like mindfulness and yoga. We also offer courses in Buddhist philosophy and psychology for those who wish to explore that path. We provide education about and for the mind, human flourishing and genuine happiness.
