Seven Guided Practices to “Rebuild” Your Brain for Lasting Joy and Fulfillment

The structure of your brain changes constantly in a dynamic, unfolding process that you yourself can help direct to create the life you want. This is the exciting premise of Meditations to Change Your Brain, a breakthrough three-CD program from neuropsychologist Rick Hanson, PhD, and neurologist Richard Mendius, MD.

Course objectives:

  • Use meditation to rewire the neural pathways in your mind—to change your brain and to change your mind
  • Learn the science behind suffering; how our survival instincts have led to our own suffering and how we can change this
  • Learn several different meditation techniques to promote concentration, let go of painful past experiences, and promote a more positive outlook
  • A scientific overview of the structure of your brain and which areas are responsible for our different skills and emotions

Drawing on a vast body of research spanning more than 30 years, Hanson and Mendius show you how to strengthen the neural circuits that generate happiness, love, and inner peace. Join them to explore fascinating insights about your brain and how you can consciously affect it with good results. Then learn seven guided meditations to reshape your brain, including:

  • “Steadying Your Mind” to tap the full creative power of your attention
  • “Taking in the Good” to maintain a positive emotional landscape
  • “Antidote to Stress,” a conscious way to activate your body’s relaxation response
  • “Healing Painful Experiences” to free yourself from the charge of negative memories

Science has proven what contemplative traditions have taught for centuries: meditation holds a key to a life of balance, peace, and joy.

Whether you’re discovering meditation for the first time or looking for a way to deepen an existing practice, with Meditations to Change Your Brain you have a full spectrum of techniques to make your brain your greatest ally on the path to personal fulfillment.

Review for Meditations to Change Your Brain Review by Jack G

This program gives practical advise on how to change the way you think and subsequently feel emotionally about events in your life that you may have had a difficult time dealing with. Also, ideas are presented on how to deal with stress to create a better focus on a balanced life. I highly recommend listing to this program while you perform a low impact exercise such as walking. Walk your way to a calmer mind.

Review for Meditations to Change Your Brain Review by Kaye A
Rating

My rating reflects quality of service and downloads from Sounds True as well as the product. If I were rating the product alone, there'd be 4 stars. But, if I were rating Sounds True alone, I would give them zero stars! I'll give you my opinion of both.

This program by Rick Hanson is pretty good. It peers at meditation from a different angle and provides good insight on what happens over time (in the brain) when you practice. There is one meditation in particular that talks you through holding the positive experience of meditation in mind while also keeping a negative memory/event/situation or current fear in the back of your mind. They say doing this helps to "desensitize" us to the negative feelings brought on by the memory/event.

As for Sounds True... well. Each track of this program is chopped off ... the authors are speaking and mid-sentence they are cut off and the next track begins. I have no idea what I missed or how incomplete the downloads are. I purchased a DVD download at the same time and couldn't get it to completely download either. I called Sounds True and here's what happened: They wanted to do a test ... they called me back several hours later to say they downloaded it successfully so it must be a problem on my end and to try again... I tried again and the same thing happened. I asked for a refund and had to call several times before I received it. Very disappointing experience. Please know I purchase digital products online with other merchants and have no problems getting complete downloads (e.g., amazon, iTunes, software companies, etc.).

I am very glad I purchased this audio program. The combination of "lecture" and meditations is effective, I enjoy listening to both of the authors, and their advice has already been very helpful to me. I especially like how they make meditating very accessible, and give lots of choices and examples of things that might or might not resonate with the listener. Learning how our primitive brains work is very enlightening!

The meditations are very nice and useful in themselves, but what I prefer is that the authors explain the foundational principles of their meditations very clearly. So clearly that I find it straightforward to apply these principles during my preferred meditative activities and even in my everyday life. And I can feel the improvement of my well-being.

I really like this product and plan to integrate the practices into my daily life. BUT--some of the meditations seem like repetitions, and at the end of one track it says "now we will do a series of meditations" and it never happens. I am still trying to sort it out...

I really enjoy what they offer in the CDs both the meditations and the teaching pieces, they are inspiring and informative and l love the sense of get of their partnership in the session.

1 MAJOR improvement for me would be to have the meditations on separate tracks from the teaching pieces that way I could listen to the teachings in my car (which is my preferred place to do so) and the meditations at home when I've got that kind of space/time.

Absolutely beautiful, in its directness, low key approach and support for those who listen to experience what is presented. For me, the downside is that the format is mp3 and does not work on my iPad; also that access to what I purchased is limited. Despite the negatives I will continue to return to Soundstrue because it offers "everything" I am interested in. Thank You!!

I love Rick Hanson. I love listening to his soothing , humorous voice as he speaks and as he leads the meditiations.
Richard Mendius' contribution is equally soothing and informative. I don't ususally do this, but aI have found it to be so interesting that I have listened to the recording several times.

Drs. Mendius and Hanson provide a scientific perspective on the benefits of meditation and offer several guided meditations followed up by an explanation of the changes that occur in the brain...and mind. The information is very practical and can be used by those new to the practice of meditation or those who wish to supplement their existing practice.

This set of meditations is really changing my life. I listen often twice, but always once, to the practices. I am quite broke, so this is all I could afford now, but i hope to buy some of the books, and continue.

Rick Hanson's work is invaluable for anyone wanting to improve the function of their brain. Especially recommended for people recovering from addiction or other negative, self-defeating behaviors.

Highly recommend. I have avoided meditation as explanations of it made little sense and my brain warred with me every step of the way. This teaching explains very clearly to me why! Their voices are soothing to listen to, they give fantastic information on the how and why of meditation practice and lead you through very simple but very powerful sessions during which I actually feel my brain firing and re-wiring. They have opened up the practice of meditation to me in a way that I can incorporate into life and gain benefit from in every facet of everyday living.

I downloaded flac version for maximum quality, but I noticed that first song Initial Descent has 1 second silent pause in 3:57. I send mail to customer support over a month ago and haven't received any replies yet. Mp3 is ok though, so I enjoy listening to Initial Descent in mp3 version;)

I first went to a workshop with Rick Hanson at Kripalu and loved it. These meditations are wonderful, useful, eye opening. I also agree, technically, that the meditations themselves should be separate tracks than the lectures surrounding them.
Technology aside, I am happy I bought these.

I find the meditations to change my Brain extreemly challenging as I am a recent widow but I am also a long term mediatator so I am very aware of possitive effects possible . I am plugging away, both expeiencing the grief and shifting to positive rememberances.

I hesitated before leaving this review. Every time I try and listen to these audios, I fall asleep. This is strange as I normally have difficulty sleeping at any time. The other curious thing is that over the many times that I listened I can remember only a pleasant voice but I have no recollection of what was said or if I went into any meditative state. Perhaps somebody can make sense of this for me because I have given it thought but am baffled.
