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.

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 Online Course, this pioneering neuropsychologist explores how you can activate these same processes inside the brain to accelerate your own transformation.

  • Complete Downloads of All Course Materials
    The entire program of The Enlightened Brain is yours to keep and enjoy.

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.

"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." Featuring more than nine hours of audio and video instruction and guided meditations, The Enlightened Brain is filled with practical tools for strengthening the neural circuitry of spacious awareness, calm in the midst of stress, contemplative absorption, resilience, and lasting happiness.

I love Rick Hanson's wisdom and how he melds Buddhism with the science of the brain. I learned a lot from this course and plan to go through it again with my husband.

I've taken several mindfulness classes. But this class with Rick Hanson has been the absolute best. Have never taken one where I've learned so much academically, personally, and practically for my use as a clinician. He does a very thorough job of explaining the neural effects of mindfulness in very helpful and interesting detail. But then the experiential portion is extremely well done, creative and useful. Great class!

Many thanks to Rick Hanson for his generous work to introduce so many practical and varied tools for working on ourselves. I looked forward to each of the sessions, and have appreciated being able to return to them for more practice. I also like the way that the course is divided into small bite-size pieces. It makes it easy to navigate, and easy to take small steps toward building long-term more consistently positive states of mind. Finally, thanks to Dr. Hanson for his sense of humor!

I have really enjoyed the course so far and have found it very helpful, however, when trying to watch the tape of the Live Session on Sept 8th, the tape stops about 13 minutes in and I am not able to see the rest of the session. I attempted to contact SoundsTrue, but have yet to get a response on how this can be corrected

Sounds True and Rick Hansen have created a course that is well organized, easily accessed, and is rich with information and practice opportunities.

All good except some tracks I can't download. No apparent way to get technical help on this. Can you advise why several tracks are not available for downloading? Or let me know who to contact for technical support.

How the brain functions during meditative states is a fascinating subject. Rick Hansen's knowledge, personal experience and insight comprise a fresh, exciting take on the neuroscience of meditation. His gentle, well-chosen words in the guided practices have enriched my own practice. Highly recommended.

Good explaination of neuroplasticity and its implication for meditation and daily life. Unfortunately this online course is not up to the usual Sounds True qualtity standards production wise. Missing course material and the author's references to diagrams not shown in the videos mare what would other wise be highly recommended - The author's book Buddha's Brain is far more informative and helpful.
