Event Details


Landguet Ried, Center for mindful living is pleased to welcome again Dr Richard Davidson, founder and director of the Center for Healthy Minds, for an online talk that will highlight the core dimensions of well-being.

With the covid-19 crisis, loneliness, depression and anxiety are on the rise and the importance of enhancing well-being and reducing mental distress have become more apparent than ever before. Scientific research carried out at the Center for Healthy Minds shows that core dimensions of psychological well-being can be cultivated through intentional mental training. During this online talk, Dr Richard Davidson will explain the core dimensions of well-being – awareness, connection, insight, purpose – and the role that meditation plays in actively and intentionally cultivating them. The talk will be followed by a time of questions & answers from participants.
