~ Dr. Daniel Amen, MD, author of New York Times
“The human brain is the most complex and amazing object in existence. As such, it’s important to know about it and to love it. It is estimated that your brain has 100 billion nerve cells and more connections in it than there are stars in the universe. It is the hardware of your soul. It is the hardware of your very essence as a human being, and you cannot be who you really want to be unless your brain works properly. How your brain works determines how happy you are, how effective you feel, and how well you interact with others.”

Join Dr. Shelly Sethi, MD, as she returns to the Cove to lead this fascinating and experiential session on the gifts of neuroplasticity — the ability of the brain to change and reorganize itself and its function throughout the lifespan. It is the brain’s way of tuning itself to meet your needs. Neuroplasticity also makes your brain extremely resilient and is the process by which all permanent learning takes place in your brain. Neuroplastic changes in the brain can occur through mind-body practices such as cognitive behavioral therapy, meditation and mindfulness practices. On the other hand, neuroplastic change is also the cause of over-reactive patterns such as depression, anxiety, obsession and other patterns of worry or tension. By understanding how we can utilize mind-body practices to restore, heal and be present, we can increase our resilience and utilize the neuroplastic nature of our brains to make positive transformations instead of being stuck in a cycle of negative thought patterns.
