Buddha's Brain
Today's show will fascinate you, inspire you, inform and delight you! We're talking today with Neuropsychologist, author, and co-founder of the Wellspring Institute for Neuroscience and Contemplative Wisdom, Dr. Rick Hanson about the book Buddha's Brain. It's a must-read and we hope you do!

Part science, part faith, part religion, part neuro-anatomy, this book shows you things that will make you think and become inspired to live your life in new ways and we are so honored to be able to discuss it all with Dr. Hanson!

Mindfulness, awareness, attention, and even suffering are central tenents to the Buddhist faith. Rick walks us through the structure of the brain and the history of how it has evolved over time to help our species survive as well as how that evolution has impacted our feeling of separateness and suffering. It is a thought provoking conversation and one that allows you to see the promise and hopefulness of the evolution of our human experiences! Listen in!
