Program your Mind (to Greatness)

Federico Lozano

Joao Ribeiro

Half-day workshop - in English

Learn more about the science and practice of mindfulness and how it can help you focus, direct your attention to what really matters, and live a happier life.

During this three-hour, hands-on, and highly experiential workshop, we will practice several different approaches to mindfulness.  More specifically, we will be exposing ourselves to the practice of contemplation during short periods of time, and then discussing the experience interactively in teams.  We will also spend time reflecting on the most recent neuroscience behind meditation, and especially how programmers and other IT professionals can benefit from a short dose of daily meditation.
