About the Conference

The Online Keynote: On Saturday, May 2nd, Dr. Hanson will speak on ‘Courage and Compassion: Living with a Strong Heart in Challenging Times’ He will teach us how to develop courage to face hard facts, and keep going when it’s stressful or scary using positive neuroplasticity to weave grit, self-worth, and confidence into your nervous system.

On Sunday, May 3rd, Elisha will speak on 'The Science of Tribe: Our Future Depends On It'. Elisha will explore the science of interdependence as the key hidden driver for making mindfulness easier, feeling more empowered and facilitating a sustainable future. 

The Online Pre-conference Workshop: For a deeper dive into Dr. Hanson's ground-breaking work, join us for the full-day Pre-conference Workshop, 'A Neuropsychology of Awakening: Healing and Practicing with the Brain in Mind', on Friday, May 1st.

The Online Post-conference Workshop: In 'Creating a Practice that Lasts', we will learn practices that you can do or teach to others to help create the clarity and energy required for consistent motivation and practice. Elisha's full-day Post-Conference Workshop takes place Monday, May 4th.

Both workshops can be purchased as part of the Four-Day ONLINE FULL ACCESS pass or as individual tickets.
