Dr Craig Hassed’s talk this week was stimulating, amusing and thought provoking.
He spoke largely from a medical scientific perspective on the power of mindfulness techniques.
Training one’s attention, focus and developing mindfulness can change the brain. Better health and longevity, higher levels of happiness and resilience, and better educational results can all flow from this.
John Colet School has been applying these techniques since its inception and now the scientific world is confirming what we have seen in practice for decades greater focus, more effective learning, and even increased expressions of virtuous behaviour.
