Neurodharma

What is it like to feel already full? To be undisturbed and undefended as each moment passes through you?

Deep down, we already are who we long to be. But it’s often covered over with fears and regrets, and daily distractions and stresses.
In this online program with Dr. Rick Hanson, you will experience and develop seven qualities at the heart of the highest happiness – and live from them more deeply and continuously.
You’ll learn from both ancient wisdom and modern neuroscience, engaging your brain and body as you explore the upper reaches of human potential.
You’ll get ideas and methods to be more present, have compassion for yourself and others, rest in a calm and grateful confidence, feel whole, and know your interconnectedness with everything.
This is a path of coming home to an increasingly profound sense of inner freedom, sweet joy, radiant heart, and sublime peace.
