07 Jan Wellbeing Skills
Join us for an inspiring event with neuroscientist Professor Richard Davidson to learn science-based skills to boost your wellbeing.
About this event
Can wellbeing skills be learned?
At this special event, neuroscientist Richard J Davidson will share the latest insights from the neuroscience of wellbeing. He’ll explain how wellbeing is not a static thing, but rather a set of skills that can be learned and cultivated over time, just like learning to play a musical instrument or riding a bike.
Prof. Davidson will show us how we can learn to cultivate a positive outlook, rebound from negative emotion, live more mindfully and grow qualities such as empathy, compassion and gratitude. And he’ll share practical actions which we can put into practice now to build positive habits for lifelong wellbeing whatever our situation.
The event will take place on Zoom at 7pm London time (GMT).
