Meditation Meets Neuroscience—Practical Tools to Reshape Your Brain for Awakening

We are inspired by the living example of great teachers, who have both penetrating insight and a loving heart. “With modern neuroscience, we’re now beginning to understand the brain processes that support these wonderful qualities of mind,” explains Dr. Rick Hanson. With The Enlightened Brain, this pioneering neuropsychologist explores how you can activate these same processes inside your own brain to accelerate your own transformation.

Self-Directed Neuroplasticity—How Our Mind Shapes Our Brain

Your thoughts and feelings continually sculpt your brain—for better or worse. As Dr. Hanson teaches, you can use the power of self-directed neuroplasticity to take control of the evolutionary tendency of your brain to react to life with fear, frustration, and heartache—and return your brain to its natural state of calm, contentment, and caring. With simple and potent practices, he reveals how you can weave positive thoughts and emotions into the fabric of your brain, allowing you to cultivate the qualities of mindfulness, virtue, and wisdom for your own path of awakening.

Course objectives:

  • Explain how to tailor psychological growth and spiritual practice to your unique neurophysiology.
  • Summarize how to defeat the negativity bias of your brain by internalizing key resources.
  • Practice pairing positive experiences with negative material to soothe and heal old pain.
  • Apply techniques to activate the neural foundations of mindfulness.
  • Practice strengthening the five factors of concentration and deep meditative absorption.
  • Utilize exercises to build neural shock absorbers for stable inner peace in a turbulent world.

“This new science gives us unprecedented tools to individualize psychological growth and spiritual practice,” says Dr. Hanson. You’ll learn about your unique “profile of attention” and which methods best strengthen your focus and concentration. You’ll also learn how to approach life with equanimity and relax the focus on “me, myself, and I.” With The Enlightened Brain, Dr. Rick Hanson gives you practical tools for strengthening the neural circuitry of spacious awareness, calm in the midst of stress, contemplative absorption, resilience, and lasting happiness.

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.

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.
