Includes a pre-show community gathering and company demos.
Kanbar Center for the Performing Arts, in San Rafael at the Osher Marin JCC
At a TEDxSalon, the format is lecture style. We go deep into one specific TOPIC, with insights from leaders in their field. These salons promote thoughtful inquiry, broadened points of view, and time for a moderated Question and Answer segment between our featured speakers and the audience.
A big Thank You to our HOST Sponsor for this Salon.
On THURSDAY JUNE 6th TEDxMarin is proud to present a very special SALON and community gathering. We will explore the latest research on the human brain, meditation, dementia, and consciousness. Remarkable new evidence will be shared about what happens in the brain (second by second) when we bring focus inward, and why it’s so beneficial. We’ll also explore how and if consciousness remains when the wiring breaks down, as in Alzheimer’s, and we’ll discuss our understanding of the age-old question, “what IS consciousness?”
This SALON includes a Pre-talk community reception connecting our 500+ attendees, including a showcase of interesting non-profits, start-ups, and local companies and services. No Host Bar and very light food tastes will be avail.
We hope you will attend this heady and heartfelt TEDxSalon on The Brain and Consciousness.
Community gathering begins at 6:30 pm. Presentations begin at 8 pm.
