Talk with Mingyur Rinpoche, one of the world’s foremost meditation teachers, and Dr. Richard J. Davidson, world-renowned neuroscientist
Can training our minds not only improve our own well-being, but the well-being of others in our communities and around the globe?
Join us for a unique evening with one of the world’s foremost meditation teachers, Yongey Mingyur Rinpoche, and Dr. Richard J. Davidson, world-renowned neuroscientist and founder of the Center for Healthy Minds and its external, affiliated nonprofit Healthy Minds Innovations.
Rinpoche has participated in the Center for Healthy Minds research since 2002. Among recent findings, the Center’s research suggests that meditation may reduce “brain age” and training in compassion practices may boost the brain’s resilience.
This event is sponsored by Tergar International, the meditation community of Yongey Mingyur Rinpoche, with the support of the Center for Healthy Minds University of Wisconsin–Madison.
