Your Brain ~ Thinking & Feeling Modes

Wintersession 2018 Lecture Series Featuring Dr. Joni Samples

Brain States Summer Intersession Lecture Series

In this four-session series, we’ll look at how early conditioning shapes our habits and how these habits make it difficult to change and stay positive. We’ll explore how resistance to change is connected to our desire to be safe and to survive, and how our feelings mirror this primal impulse. In our final meeting, you’ll discover ways to detach from some of the thoughts that drive you, and we’ll explore new ways of thinking to help you stay positive and feel good. For individual session descriptions and a special invitation from Dr. Joni, take a look at our flyer!
