Here is a talk from the San Rafael Meditation group with Rick Hanson, Ph.D. Titled “Grounding the Mind In Living Body,” this talk explores why it is useful to consider the underlying physical, biological, and the living basis of states of consciousness that have been exalted, valued, sought, and cherished by all the great traditions of the world.
The San Rafael Meditation group is a weekly gathering in San Rafael, California, and is led by Rick Hanson, Ph.D. (and occasional guest teachers). It focuses on cultivating the brain states of self-awareness, calm, and inner peace, lovingkindness, mindfulness, and happiness. Research has shown that this can strengthen your immune system and nurture other health benefits.
This group is open to seasoned meditators and people with less experience, all in an atmosphere that is friendly and focused. Newcomers are always welcome. Learn more here.
