Positive Neuroplasticity Training with Dr Rick Hanson - 2018 Australia Tour

We are delighted to again host the renowned neuro-psychologist and long-time Buddhist practitioner - Dr Rick Hanson to Australia in 2018

He will be offering his accessible and engaging experiential trainings for the general public and for helping professionals in both Perth and Melbourne, as well as presenting a the inaugural Australian Meditation conference.


Positive Neuroplasticity Training (PNT)

This three day program is open to everyone.


It consists of the six experiential sessions of the PNT course offered over three intensive days and will be engaging, inspiring and practical.

Like any other mental capability, inner strengths (positive states) are supported by structures in the brain. Resilience, positive emotions, compassion, gratitude, and other inner strengths lower stress, grow well-being and effectiveness, and heal anxiety and depression.

You will be learning about and practicing how to transform positive experiences into lasting states and traits. As well as being motivated by succinct and relevant scientific information, you will get tools and processes that you can immediately use. We will engage with the material using experiential exercises, presentations, discussion, home practice, and readings.

Research has shown that people who completed the PNT course experienced significantly less anxiety and depression, and significantly greater self-control, savoring, compassion, love, contentment, joy, gratitude, self-esteem, self-compassion, satisfaction with life, and overall happiness.

What People Are Saying

I gained a lot from this course! I would definitely recommend it to friends and already have. I hadn’t been feeling ‘myself’ at the start of the course, and hadn’t been for almost a year. I had long term RSI which has gotten better in the 8 weeks – not 100% yet, but better than 6-8 months of physio beforehand! I feel myself again, and friends and work colleagues have noticed I seem happier, less stressed and I feel able to cope with stresses easier.

Tracey, 2017

Inner strength, confidence through knowing myself better, a more positive view of my future knowing that all I need is to turn into my pain and remember it will pass

Anna, 2016

It has definitely changed relationships in my life. Also it has helped me deal with confrontation a lot better. It has helped me become a lot more task focussed and given me the skill to see where my mind often wanders and why it goes to certain places. Loved the course and would recommend it to everyone.

Lacee, 2015

The course has made me feel a lot calmer in a busy life. It has reminded me to stop and smell the roses. It has taught me that awareness – is just that – not complicated! That meditation is not about stopping all thoughts but acknowledging them and letting them pass and then focussing back on the here and now.

Lisa 2016

It is hard to verbalise the surprisingly profound impact this experience (so much more than a course) has had on me. It has been so complete—spiritually, emotionally, professionally and intellectually.
