“This book is about how to reach inside your own brain to create more happiness, love, and wisdom. It explores the historically unprecedented intersection of psychology, neurology, and contemplative practice to answer two questions:
- What brain states underlie the mental states of happiness, love and wisdom?
- How can you use your mind to stimulate and strengthen these positive brain states?
The result is a practical guide to your brain, full of tools you can use to gradually change it for the better.”
~ Rick Hanson from Buddha’s Brain
Rick Hanson is a neuropsychologist and meditation teacher and this book delivers on its sub-title, delivering a practical look at the neuroscience of happiness, love and wisdom.
It’s packed with Big Ideas on the science of how our brains work and he shares a broad range of various practices and guided meditations to help us re-wire our brains.
If you’re feelin’ it, I think you’ll enjoy the book. For now, I’m excited to share a handful of my favorite Big Ideas!
