Would you listen to Neurosculpting again? Why?
This author brings it all together - the neuroscience that is transforming the practice of psychiatry and psychology; the fundamental spiritual nature of our being; the connection between our physical wellness, psychological wellness and spiritual wellness; and how to dislodge the firmly entrenched but damaging habits we have all developed in the process of growing up and trying to find our way in a disconnected, anxious and angry world.
What was one of the most memorable moments of Neurosculpting?
This is the first spiritual leader I have ever heard speak frankly to the fact that we have unnecessarily resigned ourselves to a bleak old age, and a dismal future in a culture that glorifies youth. The tools that we need to completely change this resignation into hope for a productive and health future are all here - spiritual (meditation), physical (diet and exercise) and psychological (habits of negative thinking). All validated by years of research and science, supported by what we are discovering about how the mind and body work together.
What about Lisa Wimberger’s performance did you like?
The author's tone is completely honest and unpretentious. She seeks out and articulates the listeners inner voices of doubt and concern, responding reasonably and convincingly without asking for any suspension of disbelief, or suggesting that blind faith is a requirement.
The mark of a true spiritual leader is that they do not ask you to rely on their authority and knowledge - they ask and even demand that the spiritual seeker look within and identify for themselves, based on their own experience, what they know to be true. They do not require students to accept doctrine and dogma without question. In fact, they do not present any doctrine or dogma at all. And they do not assign responsibility for our poor choices to some external source of evil. The author meets all of these criteria and more.
What insight do you think you’ll apply from Neurosculpting?
I went through a period in my life where I had a well-paying job, was very fit, and decided to add a formal spiritual practice to my daily routine, and began to learn about and practice Tibetan Buddhism. Spirituality as a fashion accessory. Anxiety and depression became such significant drivers in my life, I ended up ranging further afield for solutions.
I read almost compulsively about neuroplasticity, and advances in understanding the interaction between genes and the environment, and effects on behaviors. About two years ago I learned about trauma-informed care, and in my opinion it should completely revolutionize psychotherapy. To me, the most important point from this book is the balance and communication that needs to be established and maintained between different aspects of the brain. We think of our brains as a single unit, when really they are much more like a small house with a bunch of additions that all have a different purpose. They don't communicate with each other, and some parts run on completely different neuro systems.
Any additional comments?
This is a comprehensive toolkit, very well researched and organized, the delivery of the material is excellent, and the approach taken to emotional and mental healing is valid and reliable. I wish I could get everyone I know to listen to this.

I came across this book at exactly the right time, in my own journey I was also led to study the brain and the limbic system! Now I was wanting to learn more about neuroplasticity and meditation...Lisa explains all of this perfectly and beautifully!
She takes you on many guided meditations into re-sculpting your brain, her technique and voice play the perfect role in guiding you on this journey! I learned a lot and will continue reading all of her materials!

Very good balance between explanation and exercises. I have been through each meditation just once, but found each one quiet profound. Really want to get these into my regular practice and will invest in Lisa's other works.
Would you try another book written by Lisa Wimberger or narrated by Lisa Wimberger?
Any additional comments?
This is simply not suitable as an audio book. This is a course. Steer clear
Good narration, easy to follow and insightful. I keep going back to key points to keep moving forward.
it droned on about this & that. never really pinpointing how to acieve anything realistically.
i was disapointed.
i didnt like it
