I will be giving an engaging FREE talk on The Science of Willpower: How to stick with your highest aspirations through the holidays and beyond! at Vitamin Cottage / Natural Grocers (100 W South Boulder Road, Lafayette, CO 80026) on Tuesday, December 5th from 6:00-7:30pm!
If you’ve ever wondered why making New Year’s Resolutions is so easy and keeping them is so difficult, you’re not alone. In this interactive seminar, we will look at willpower from the perspectives of both modern neuroscience and ancient Vedic wisdom. The lecture will be interspersed with experiential exercises to help the material to come alive, and questions and comments will be entertained.
