PNT consists of class meetings, a Handbook, and suggested out-of class practices (we call these “taking home the good”). We also highly recommend Hardwiring Happiness by Rick Hanson, Ph.D. as a fundamental text for this training.

We hope you enjoy this training and get a lot out of it. And please let your teacher know if you have any questions or if there is anything that would make the training a better experience for you.
