Meet your Trainer, Stephanie Wagner 




HMI logo The Great Lakes MHTTC is excited to announce a line-up of new trainings based on ground-breaking research from the Center for Healthy Minds.

 (HMI) was started in 2014 by world-renowned neuroscientist Dr. Richard Davidson and is the nonprofit affiliated with the Center for Healthy Minds at the University of Wisconsin-Madison.

HMI's mission is to translate science into tools and programs to cultivate and measure well-being. 

Awareness, connection, insight, and purpose

The Center and HMI actively collaborates to explore the effectiveness of the "Healthy Minds Framework" for understanding how human flourishing can be nurtured. The framework consists of four pillars of well-being: awareness, connection, insight, and purpose. Research shows that each of these four pillars are related to specific networks in the brain and can be strengthened through meditation and other forms of mental training. Learn more about the framework in the peer-reviewed paper that appeared in the The Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (PNAS)

All of the trainings offered by HMI will highlight the scientific evidence that demonstrates we can train our minds for greater well-being and provide simple practices that participants can implement to increase their well-being skills such as awareness, connection, insight and purpose.
