Description

If you’ve ever wanted more happiness during this exceptionally trying time, then do we have the Neurodharma show for you.

Today I’ll be talking with Dr. Rick Hanson, neuro-psychologist, brain expert, and the best-selling author of “Hardwiring Happiness”, “Just One Thing”, “The Buddha’s Brain”, “Resilient”, and his latest incredibly peaceful and enlightening book, “Neurodharma”

And that’s just what I want to talk with him about today, about new science, ancient wisdom, and practices of the highest happiness for this interesting time.

Key Points Discussed:

  • As a neuroscientist, with everything that is going on in the world today, what is going on with our minds? (03:22 )
  • The worldwide alarm and concern that people have been trying to make sense of and how he’s helping people find their footing and build up calm strength (04:52 )
  • Knowing ourselves scientifically, biologically, neurologically, and from the inside out through modern psychological and the perennial wisdom of the ages (07:00 )
  • Our vulnerability to negative learning, why we should avoid the news, and what we should do so that we are not hardwiring our minds for anger (08:34 )
  • Letting be, letting go, and letting in: Three ways to productively and helpfully engage our brains (13:10 )
  • Taking the power that we have to shift the underlying physical factors in our brain and nervous system to guide ourselves to a better place (20:20
  • Using flowers to crowd out and uproot the weeds that linger in our minds (25:00 )
  • Linking the negativity we are exposed to to positive habits so we can go to a place of gratitude instead of dwelling on the negativity (29:30 )
  • The healing opportunity that is coming with the current pandemic (35:18 )
  • Looking for ways to grow strengths within ourselves that are hard-wired in our nervous system (37:32 )
  • 15 seconds of close contact with the Dalai Lama and what we can learn from him (40:15 )
  • Doing what is conducive to the welfare and happiness of others (45:00 )
  • The importance of bringing things back to compassion and loving-kindness in our relationships with others and ourselves (49:50 )
  • Appreciating ourselves and others genuinely especially during this time (53:22 )
