A Mindful Society 2020:
Pre-Conference with Rick Hanson
Welcome to Caversham Booksellers' virtual book table for A Mindful Society 2020: Pre-conference with Rick Hanson, A Neuropsychology of Awakening: Healing and Practicing with the Brain in Mind.
"The deepest roots of the highest happiness are in the body. At the intersection of modern science and ancient wisdom – which could be called neurodharma – we can find very practical tools for an openhearted, joyful, and generous life."
Rick Hanson has been a bestselling author at Caversham for years and we are pleased to carry his many books and resources.
The New York Times bestselling author and senior fellow of the Greater Good Science Center at UC Berkeley presented a workhop at Leading Edge Seminars in Toronto in 2013, the week that Hardwiring Happiness was released, and that made it a number-one bestseller for us. That's a sure indicator of a top-notch presenter!
We're blessed now with the same great timing of book publication and author appearance, with Neurodharma: New Science, Ancient Wisdom, and Seven Practices of the Highest Happiness, shipped to us ahead of its trade release date! His poignant book for these uncertain times Resilient, is also the top of our recommendations, now in paperback.
