The Science and Practice of Resiliency Course: Friday, March 30, 2018

Good day to you all! Hey, I found a great class taught by Rick Hanson that offered a webinar option for March 30, 2018 from 9:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. I’ve reserved a spot in the webinar section, and would like to invite anyone and everyone to join us for this really interesting-looking learning opportunity.

I’ve posted the training on our main page (scroll down to the bottom), but you can also find more information about the course here.  I think it would be neat to get a group together to experience this; please, please, please…if you’re interested in attending, R.S.V.P. to me at so I can get a head-count.  March 26th is my deadline.

Venue: the class starts at 9:00 a.m., and libraries don’t open on weekdays until 10:00 a.m.  First chink in the armor.  I’m looking into community centers in Clackamas County that rent rooms and also have wired internet capability.  If you RSVP, I’ll keep you updated regarding the venue and will post on our site again once we’ve secured some real estate to park ourselves.

The Greater Good Science Center is located on UC Berkeley Campus, and has an amazing reputation for quality neurobiology education and mindfulness courses.  It is considered the “epicenter for research on happiness and gratitude” (Ron Lieber, New York Times).  One of the stand-out instructors is Emiliana R. Simon-Thomas, the Science Director at GGSC.  Learn a little more about her on the Greater Good staff profile page.  You’ll find a really interesting YouTube talk she gave on The Biology of Mindfulness and Compassion on our “About Us” link…scroll down to Our Favorite Video of the Week and view Emiliana Simon-Thomas speak about Compassion and the Brain.

Remember, RSVP to by March 26th if you’d like to attend the webinar.

Until soon, keep smiling!
