"The Master Practitioner and The Reflective Brain," presenter, Nan Burnett. Thursday, February 27, 2014 -- noon to 1pm EST

How do mediation practitioners develop mastery in their work? This webinar will explore the relationship between reflective thinking and neuroscience. It will cover how what we perceive at the table is processed and how it can enhance our reflective thinking. Developing mastery also includes the concepts of mindfulness and integrative thought as well as holistic approaches to self-care.
