Awakening Your Genius Through the Science of Mindful Awareness – Shaun Nanavati | 10AM-5PM


10:00 am – 5:00 pm

This one day retreat will introduce the Tibet House community to a dynamic new approach to the system of mindfulness, in which self-regulation, emotional intelligence, cognition, social interaction will be covered.

Interactive dialogue, colorful stories, group exercises, and neuroscience lessons will be peppered throughout to make the workshop fun and engaging.  By the end of this four-hour session, you will learn to be a thought leader, develop your own visualization skills, make better decisions and connect more authentically with others.

All levels are welcome. Please dress comfortably and be ready to speak your mind!
