Good stuff., June 14, 2016

This review is from: Buddha’s Brain: The Practical Neuroscience of Happiness, Love, and Wisdom (Paperback)

Customer Video Review Length:: 9:57 Mins

“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 subtitle, 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 I know one thing for sure, it’s that you can do small things inside your mind that will lead to big changes in your brain and your experience of living… You really can nudge your whole being in a better direction every day. When you change your brain, you change your life.”

Here are some of my favorite Big Ideas:

1. Your Future Self – Be nice to it.
2. Your PNS – Activating it is good.
3. Meditation – A regular practice is (very) good.
4. Intentions & Suffering – Check your intentions.
5. Equanimity – Do you have a balanced mind?

Here’s to diligently, patiently and persistently nurturing the mindfulness that leads to more happiness, wisdom and love!

great book that can be transformative, October 15, 2016

This review is from: Buddha’s Brain: The Practical Neuroscience of Happiness, Love, and Wisdom (Paperback)

Great book! This is well written and has a great deal of technical information that is “translated” to help readers understand and transform it into usable knowledge! Mindfulness can be a broad term but in this book, it is operationally defined to make it become something beyond an abstraction. Most interesting aspect of the book is the connection between evidence based, that is the scientific basis that meditation and other ways of activating the neural pathways responsible for creating changes in awareness. I highly recommend this book for those who wish to explore the interesting dynamics between mindfulness, neurobiology and the evolution of spirituality being a good part of daily healthy living, The brain is a great universe and the heuristic construct of the mind is indeed a working part of Being.

Ricky Hanson is brilliant! I have been interested in meditation for years and have read numerous book on the subject but, not one had explained the physiology aspect of meditation the way this one does. Surely, we all know it is good to meditate and to have a daily practice, but why exactly? This book actually easily guides the reader to understand all the intricate neurological processes that occur with each and every action, reaction or, lack thereof. Now, I understand what goes on in my brain when I meditate and how it helps my overall health and well being. It is no longer a guessing game or hopeful thinking. I have found the last book I will ever need on the subject and it also has guided practices.
