With ‘mindfulness’ showing up everywhere from our local schools to weeklong retreats, in corporate boardrooms to locker rooms, it might be easy to see it as a national craze that will soon hit its saturation point and disappear from the headlines.

But with a dozen or more research studies emerging in peer-reviewed studies each month, the science of mindfulness is growing, lending credibility to ABC’s mindful anchor, Dan Harris’ prediction: that mindfulness meditation will someday be seen in the same way as physical exercise - something everyone knows is good for you. 

Then we’ll just need to figure out how to incorporate it regularly into our lives.

Please join mindfulness teacher, Brian Shiers, for his FREE active intensive workshop, “The Neuroscience of Now’, where he’ll do just that.

With over 26 years of dedicated practice under the guidance of some of Los Angeles’ most prominent teachers, Brian serves as a senior mindfulness teacher for UCLA’s Mindful Awareness Research Center, and is a mindfulness-based psychotherapist practicing in Studio City.

Brian has studied embodied awareness methods at the Gurdjieff Foundation Los Angeles since 1993, Tibetan Buddhist Vajrayana, shamatha, and vipassana practices in the Kagyu lineage for over fifteen years, and has completed nine week-long retreats, acquiring over 4,500 hours of both sitting and moving meditation. 

Brian also combines degrees in Kinesiology and Psychology / Interpersonal Neurobiology, setting the foundation for an east / west approach to understanding the mind and consciousness. 

For 5 seasons he has served as the Mindfulness Coach to the UCLA Bruin Women's Varsity Volleyball Teams and has brought mindfulness to the workplace at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory, Disney Animation Studios, Nestle', Mattel Inc., and Salesforce.com.  Brian also leads 3-day silent retreats for law enforcement in the Pacific Northwest, and is the mindfulness trainer for the FBI’s Hostage Rescue Team.

This workshop is FREE. Email for more information: brianshiers@me.com
