Dido Balla was the main presenter. Goldie joined us through some pre-recorded videos but she was informative. Dido shared the intricacies of the mind and how mindfulness can help you get the most out of our noggin. His website identifies him as a "brain trainer."

I reviewed Balla's blog and it is filled with videos and postings that discuss dealing with emotions, memories, happiness, optimism, and much more. I know that I will be spending my evenings learning from this blog.
An interesting benefit of this event was my discovering the MindUP Brain Break. This is a 3-minute video where Dido Balla leads you in mindful breathing. I plan to use this with my students to show them how they can engage in mindfulness.
