GAINING News from Aimee Liu – April 20
January 1, 1970Dear Friends,
I want to alert you to a few coming events, but before I get to those I’d like to recommend a fabulous book about the power of the mind to change our lives for the better. TRAIN YOUR MIND, CHANGE YOUR BRAIN, by Newsweek science writer Sharon Begley, examines the latest research in neuroplasticity in a quest to understand how mindful awareness practices can have the powerful effects on reducing stress, relieving anxiety, and increasing immunity that have recently been measured, both in Buddhist practitioners and research volunteers. The book raises all sorts of exciting and encouraging possibilities. In particular, it highlights the health we all stand to gain through increased self-awareness.
Next, to let you know about some upcoming events where I’ll be speaking, in Southern California, Boston, and Baltimore. Some are for the general public, some for students, and some for mental health professionals. In any event, I’d love to see you!
