This day-long experiential workshop will provide instruction and experiential practice in several mindfulness and compassion practices shown to be effective for worry, self-criticism, and depressive rumination.
It will also provide a comprehensive and current explanation of the neuroscience of mindfulness and compassion meditation that is accessible and understandable.
We will discuss the neuroscience of anxiety and rumination, and how mindfulness and compassion meditations can affect the neurocircuitry of the brain and autonomic nervous system leading to improved capacity for present-moment attention, acceptance, feelings of connection, and emotional regulation, in the context of modern cognitive science, affective and evolutionary psychology, attachment theory, and cutting-edge neuroscience in neuroplasticity, emotional regulation and reward neurocircuitry, mirror-neuron systems, and large-scale neural connectivity networks.

The labyrinth began as an intricate maze meant to trap the monstrous Minotaur on the island of Crete. After many centuries of evolution, it has become a spiritual and meditative tool, with a single path in and out of the center. The journey to the center represents going deep within the self on the way to revelation or enlightenment. Join us for a self-guided walk through a labyrinth formed out of candles, complete with quiet music and incense. Cushions will be available outside the labyrinth for seated meditation. This is a donation-based event, with no one turned away for lack of funds.
