Event description

Description

Renowned mindfulness teacher, Associate Professor Craig Hassed, is coming to Brisbane in August to run two workshops on the science of mindfulness.

Mindfulness has generated enormous interest in fields as diverse as mental health, neuroscience, genetics, education, sport and leadership. It may be the single most important life skill we ever develop.

Don't miss your chance to see Dr Craig Hassed while he's in town. Attend one of the workshops for $60 or both for $100. Places are limited so booking ahead is recommended. All are welcome.

How to book both workshops
If you would like to attend both workshops, simply select either Saturday or Sunday under the date heading, and then ensure you choose 'Saturday + Sunday workshops' when selecting tickets. This will entitle you to attend both days. Any questions, call Christine from the School of Philosophy on 0414303338.


Mindfulness: science, practice and philosophy
Saturday, August 10

Stress, inattention, multitasking and haste are becoming ubiquitous in the modern world and they come at a significant cost in terms of wasted time, inefficiency, mistakes and miscommunication. The popularity of mindfulness can be looked upon as an antidote to modern life.This presentation will explore the science, practice and philosophy of mindfulness across a wide variety of applications including managing stress, coping with workload, enhancing mental and physical health, healthy ageing, and effective learning and communication.


Mind-body Medicine
Sunday, August 11

Marsilio Ficino, the great Renaissance philosopher, once wrote, "the body is the shadow of the soul”, soul being a translation of the word ‘psyche’. Essentially, what goes on in the mind has profound effects on our physical state for better or worse. This interactive presentation will explore the modern science and ancient philosophy of mind-body medicine. Through scientific disciplines like epigenetics and psychoneuroimmunology we will look at the impacts of stress and mental health on chronic illness, ageing, the brain, immunity and how we cope with physical illness and symptoms.
