Power Of Your Mind

What is manifestation and does it work?

For decades the idea of manifestation has been dismissed as self-obsessed pseudoscience. But research shows that attention practices like meditation and visualisation can actually change the structure of your brain and lay the groundwork for happier and kinder living.

At this special event, neuroscientist and compassion expert Professor James Doty will reveal the amazing hidden power of your mind. He'll explain how manifestation, when understood properly and used wisely, can help us to reclaim our agency, achieve our goals and help others along the way too.

Discover how to develop an empowering inner dialogue to help you take positive steps forward. And learn proven meditation and journaling practices to make a difference and move towards the life you want.

This was recorded at an Action for Happiness live event on 06 February 2024 hosted by Dr Mark Williamson.
