I purchased this program after reading "Buddha's Brain." It is great program and is helping me to develop facets of my psychology I've been working on for years.

Wow, this is one of the best audiobooks I've ever listened to and has helped me to live a more calm and contented life. Rick clearly talks about how the brain works and then guides people through mindfulness meditations that are logical and easy to follow. This is not a weak airy fairy style program - it is very real and wonderful. I HIGHLY recommend this if you want to have less anxiety and grow in how you live your life.

A comprehensive, in depth, and personal program that blends teaching and meditation smoothly. There is so much depth to the program that I will listen to it several more times to get the most out of it. Rick has a soothing voice and the recording quality is excellent. If I were to buy only one of Rick's recordings, this would be it. Highly recommended.

This program far exceeded my expectations. I've worked with several of Rick Hanson's audio programs and books, so I knew it would be good. The Enlightened Brain encompasses all the others and more. This is a program I'll listen to many times. I plan to immerse myself in it during an upcoming private weekend retreat.

Rick Hanson has the ability to explain concepts in simple terms that most people can understand and apply to their own situation. I was in law enforcement for over twenty-eight years and I wish I had a mentor like Rick during those years.
