Nirvana Through Technology

This program is sponsored by Relevant Wealth Advisors and by an anonymous donor.

New studies show that meditation can change the structure of our brains in ways that might boost concentration, memory and positive emotions. How does learning, focus and emotional regulation lead to a more fulfilling life? Can technology make it easier to learn mindfulness techniques and therefore improve brain health?

Dr. Adam Gazzaley, renowned neuroscientist, entrepreneur and inventor, and Dr. Jack Kornfield, author, Buddhist practitioner and one of the key teachers to introduce Buddhist mindfulness to the West, are working to build bridges between technology and the contemplative arts. Join us as we learn about this groundbreaking scientific research and how we can apply it to our personal and professional lives.
