The Neuroscience and Psychology of Personal Transformation
The seeds of happiness are always within you. Join the author of Uncovering Happiness and The Now Effect, clinical psychologist Elisha Goldstein, for a transformative experience of how to create lasting personal transformation and grow happier—naturally and sustainably.
Learn the step-by-step principles and practices that nurture your brain’s natural antidepressants, especially the practice of mindfulness, one of the most important elements. An increasing body of research shows that mindfulness can help us heal stress, anxiety, depression, addiction, and chronic pain.
Though mindfulness is the foundation for Elisha’s work, you also learn the science behind other contributors and critical components of happiness to help you thrive and live a fulfilled life.
In this experiential workshop, you will learn:
- How to utilize mindfulness to uncover the happiness within
- The key elements that fuel the depression loop
- Why self-compassion is essential for emotional resilience—and key ways to integrate it into your life
- The top 10 guideposts to making happiness come alive and how to start implementing them
- The critical nature of play for adults and how to rediscover its powers in daily life.
With a unique ability to make complex concepts simple, Elisha will help you expand your capacity to nurture a stronger and healthier brain and open up to joy, love, self-compassion, and a greater sense of happiness.
Learn effective tools for tapping into your natural antidepressants so you can easily access greater happiness, connection, and joy.
Discover the many gifts of mindfulness as a practice with potent physical, mental, and emotional effects that can transform stuck aspects in your life and open up refreshing new outlooks.
Experience greater energy and confidence to pursue new possibilities in your habits, relationships, and approach to life.
