Balancing Your Attention: a Practical Seminar

February 8, 2014, 11:00

On February 8th, the Digital October Center will host a 7-hour practical seminar devoted to studying cognitive introspection, learning methods for developing cognitive and metacognitive skills, and identifying and dealing with cognitive distortion.

The seminar will be led by Igor Berkhin, a professor at the Moscow Institute of Psychoanalysis and author of meditation courses both on- and offline. For over ten years, he has been teaching the application of ancient Buddhist practices in contemporary life.

Berkhin will offer an intense series of short, interconnected exercises designed to help attendees to master his methods and to learn how to focus their attention and block out external distractions.

Event participants will receive:

  • practical experience in identifying the various aspects of attention
  • basic skills for balancing one’s attention (alternating moments of effort and relaxation)
  • a variety of stimulating exercises to do on your own
  • as well as access to expert consultations via Skype and e-mail in the month following the seminar.


As Berkhin himself notes, “this seminar is designed for well-educated people who work with large amounts of information on a regular basis and who are interested in developing their cognitive abilities, along with their other inner resources.”
