My colleague and good friend, Rick Hanson, has created a rather fabulous online learning program in his Foundations of Well-Being. Thousands of people participated in the program last year. FWB is a guided, step-by-step program that shows you how to use the science of positive neuroplasticity to turn ordinary experiences into powerful inner strengths, including kindness toward yourself, insight into others, grit, gratitude, and self-worth.
Rick is offering the program again beginning in January 2016. Rick will use the 12 Pillars of Well-Being to teach you practical, effective ways to see more of the good in your life, and grow greater calm, contentment, and confidence from the inside out.
Rick interviewed me as a guest expert for the 2015 program; I know it’s thorough, it’s deep, and it works-with insightful talks, guided practices, revealing quizzes, monthly live-streamed events with Rick, creative activities, and inspiring other guest experts like Tara Brach, Jack Kornfield, and Gretchen Rubin. You also get vibrant community forums, the science behind the program, special interest areas (e.g., children, addiction).
Rick is a Senior Fellow of the Greater Good Science Center at UC Berkeley, and invited speaker at Oxford, Harvard, and Stanford universities. He’s also the New York Times bestselling author of Buddha’s Brain, Hardwiring Happiness, Just One Thing, and Mother Nurture, a neuropsychologist, meditation teacher, and very down-to-earth, practical, and warm-hearted guy. You’ll enjoy him immensely.
The Foundations program costs just $39/month-about $1 a day- with a money-back guarantee. And if you sign up before December 15, you’ll save $141 with the early-bird special. Also, psychotherapists, social workers, and nurses can receive 24 continuing education credits for just an additional $50.
You really can change your brain for the better, and in the Foundations of Well-Being program, it’s straight-forward, fascinating, and fun.Start feeling less stressed or worried, become more mindful and grateful, free yourself from past painful experiences, and experience more pleasure and joy in daily life.
