Interfaith Meditation Series - Mindfulness Meditation and Neuroscience

Jan 17, 2022 05:00 PM to 06:00 PM

Registration Deadline: Jan 17, 2022 06:00 PM

Join Professor Norman Farb to learn about how mindfulness changes the brain and improves our wellbeing. Professor Farb studies the neuroscience of human identity and emotion, with a focus on how cognitive biases shape emotional reactions that determine well-being. In his research, he is particularly interested in how cognitive training practices such as mindfulness meditation foster resilience against stress, reducing vulnerability to affective disorders such as depression.

The Interfaith Meditation Series is CCR certified. The co-curricular record (CCR) captures the experiences and skills you learn beyond the classroom on an official document. We host sessions every month so attending 4 sessions from the series will automatically add this experience to your professional record. This way you can refer to it in professional settings (like job interviews) with much more confidence!
