IMCW is pleased to sponsor a talk with Daniel Goleman, New York Times bestselling author of the groundbreaking book Emotional Intelligence. During this special evening, Goleman will reveal the latest research on how you can personally benefit from meditation and will sign copies of his new book, Altered Traits: Science Reveals How Meditation Changes Mind, Brain, and Body.
For Altered Traits, Goleman teamed up with renowned neuroscientist Richard Davidson to compare claims made about meditation—in traditional Eastern texts, Western popular media, and practitioners' subjective experience—with emerging scientific research. Exciting, compelling, and grounded in new research, this is one of those rare books that has the power to change us at the deepest level.
Some of the things Daniel Goleman discusses during his talk:
- The most compelling impacts of meditation are not better health or sharper business performance but, rather, a further reach toward our better nature.
- How a dedicated practice can cultivate enduring qualities like selflessness, equanimity, a loving presence, and impartial compassion—highly positive altered traits.
- More than sheer hours, we need smart practice, including crucial ingredients such as targeted feedback from a master teacher and a more spacious, less attached view of the self, all of which are missing in widespread versions of mind training.
