AspenBrainLab is Saturday

Staff report

The third annual AspenBrainLab takes place from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 25, at Paepcke Auditorium on the Aspen Institute campus.

The event will feature 16 thought leaders, such as Steve Jobs biographer and Aspen Institute CEO Walter Isaacson, bestselling author William Moyers and 12 Tibetan monks who will lead a chanting meditation.

The event is divided into two sessions. The first starts at 8 a.m. with opening remarks from Aspen Brain Forum President Glenda Greenwald.

Session One will include three discussions — “Creative Brain,” “Impaired Brain” and “Healthy Brain” — and a 45-minute “breakfast brain break.” For passholders only, lunch will be offered at Meadows Restaurant from 12:30 to 2 p.m.

Beginning at 2 p.m., the second session will look at “Future Brain/Future Mind” and include an exercise snack and speaker book signing.

Session One single tickets run for $195; Session Two is $175. VIP passes, which include access to both sessions and a “networking lunch with speakers,” are available for $390.

Tickets may be purchased at or by calling 970-920-5770.

All proceeds will go to the event’s sponsor, the Aspen Brain Forum.

The Aspen Brain Forum is a think tank whose mission statement is to “educate, nurture and delight the brains and minds of our growing community of 21st-century global seekers.”
