Featuring Keynote Speaker Dr. Marsha Lucas
Your relationships are essential to your sense of emotional well-being — and to your physical wellness. For so many of us, one or more of our relationships (with our partners, employees, boss, kids — and ourselves!) are tangled or draining. And you probably aren’t saying to yourself, "Hey! I know the solution! I'll go sit alone and meditate!"
But here’s the synapse — the connection: You can improve your brain’s relationship wiring — actual neural pathways and connections — through the simple practice of mindfulness. That same practice also improves immune function, decreases loss of brain tissue in aging, boosts heart health, and more. There's now an abundance of solid research from leading neuroscience labs showing all of that, and more — all from practicing mindfulness.
Dr. Marsha Lucas offers down-to-earth discussion and practices to move yourself toward integrating the latest neuroscience and the practice of mindfulness — to get real traction on the path to healthier, more vibrant relationships, and a healthier, more vibrant YOU.
