We hope you’ll join Dr. Jim Gordon for our next free online webinar on Friday, September 25 with Rick Hanson, author of the new book Neurodharma: New Science, Ancient Wisdom, and Seven Practices of the Highest Happiness, will join me at 3 PM ET for a live conversation, Bringing a Meditative Mind to Our Current National Crisis.” We’ll be exploring ways to stay in balance and act with wisdom and compassion while COVID-19 devastates, wildfires destroy, politicians scream, and we do our best to achieve a reckoning with our history of racism.

His books include Resilient, Hardwiring Happiness, Buddha’s Brain, Just One Thing, and Mother Nurture.

This webinar is approximately 60 minutes in length, and will be simultaneously broadcast LIVE at 3PM ET on Friday, September 25 on YouTube and Facebook. In the latter part of the webinar, Rick and I will be answering questions from the audience.
