Publisher's Summary

There's been a major breakthrough in the world's oldest research experiment. For over 2,500 years, Buddhist meditators have investigated the human psyche. Now, with the help of modern neuroscience, we have gained an unprecedented understanding of how the brain responds to meditation practice - which gives you powerful tools for changing your own brain for more happiness, love, and wisdom. With The Enlightened Brain, Dr. Rick Hanson shows you how to restore the calm, contented, and caring state that is your brain's natural condition.
Includes guided practices for strengthening mindfulness, bringing peace to anger and anxiety, deepening meditation, releasing ego, and much more.

repeat but still good

I'm starting to feel like if you have read one Hanson book you have read them all. his books all have the same things. at least the ones I've read. but it's still good information

i love this book

i absolutely love this book. listened to it a couple of times, and went back and created a yoga class sequence for a student of mine that was 10 weeks. i grew, and he grew and loved it as well. great things to take into everyday life, and great ways to get the right perspective for breakthroughs and "revelations of the obvious".

An amazing inspiration !!

It's always a joy to listen to Rick Hanson. He is warm, gracious and wise. His advice is steeped in a combination of neuropsychology and Buddhist faith. This, for me, is perfect.
