I received a flyer in my mailbox entitled "Buddha's Brain: The practical neuroscience of happiness, love, and wisdom." There are conferences on the East Coast this spring run by Rick Hanson, who wrote a book of the same title. It looks very interesting and I wish I could attend. It is just not in the budget right now. Perhaps I will check out his book. I already signed up for his e-newsletters Just One Thing and Wise Brain Bulletin. His website is http://www.rickhanson.net/
On a different note, I signed up for the Minfulness: Foundation for Teaching and Learning at Bryn Mawr College in March!! I'm very excited to attend 1 day of this 3 day conference and excited that it is close to home. I believe Gretchen will be attending as well, so we will have to compare notes. I am also very excited to meet with other liked minded people in our area and to see how they are incorporating mindfulness practice into their schools.
