From early development to eventual degradation, our brains are constantly in a state of flux. This year Brainwave examines the connections between the Buddhist idea of impermanence and cutting-edge research in neuroplasticity. By exploring these changes we investigate how the brain has shaped the human race and how it could reshape our future.
Each program involves an experiential element to allow the audience to more deeply integrate the discussion.
This year we welcome a residency of the Center for Healthy Minds, which is at the forefront of studying the intersection between neuroscience and contemplative practice, led by renowned neuroscientist Dr. Richard Davidson of the University of Madison-Wisconsin.
You live inside your head, but do you understand how it works? Brainwave investigates how our minds shape our everyday experiences with onstage conversations and immersive experiences that combine the most compelling advancements in science with traditional Himalayan wisdom.
