Since human experience occurs in the brain, explains Dr. Rick Hanson, the source of suffering can also be traced to certain processes in the brain. In “The Causes of Suffering,” Dr. Hanson identifies six engines that drive suffering—even though these patterns were originally established to boost our chances of survival. Through practices like meditation, we can learn to understand the conditioning of our minds and strengthen behaviors and attitudes that support our success.
