Authors@Google: Rick Hanson

Jesus, Moses, the Buddha, and other great teachers were all born with a brain built essentially like anyone else’s. Then they used their minds to change their brains in ways that changed history. With the new breakthroughs in neuroscience, combined with insights from thousands of years of contemplative practice, you, too, can shape your own brain for greater happiness, love, and wisdom. Written with neurologist Richard Mendius, MD, and with a Foreword by Daniel Siegel, MD and a Preface by Jack Kornfield, Ph.D.,Buddha’s Brain: The Practical Neuroscience of Happiness, Love, and Wisdom joins modern science with ancient teachings to show you how to have greater emotional balance in turbulent times, as well as healthier relationships, more effective actions, and greater peace of mind.

  • Really amazing and interesting speach, I think it’s just great to know all those little bits of information amout your brain and then relate them to your mind…

  • @basass101
    Obvious isn’t it? Its other roles. The heart has a brain too and does trigger reactions; it doesn’t just pump blood. Since everything is relative, we can’t just look at the brain and believe that everything is in there.

    In Daoism, they believe that we have 3 brains; brain, heart and lower abdomen. I’m sure they had seriously good reason to think so.

  • @HBWKnuckles it pumps the blood

  • View Rick Hanson’s interview with Best of You Today by visiting our website.

  • @HBWKnuckles It’s part of the endocrine system which he mentioned. He has slides on his site too.

  • Is there any study that shows what happens when a person actually meditates on the thalamus for hours with a feeling of love for all that is?

    Because it does something to the cerebrospinal fluid…

  • What about the heart?

  • This is a fabulously enlightening video. It makes any ‘organised’ religion look like… well, what it clearly is. Science is really getting something convincing to say about happiness and good.

  • @mrcouch1000 You are reinforcing the negative bias of your neurology. For an improved life experience, focus on one or more of the following: 1) there are subtitles in the video to help you understand the hard-to-understand Asian 2) the Asian goes away after a couple of minutes, and then a mother-tongue English speaker called Rick Hanson gives a very interesting talk on neuroplasticity 3) you can watch this and many other videos on a nice big website called YouTube 4) free.

  • I could hardly understand the asian…


  • understanding begins with the one…from within and never from without yet conciously aware that interconnectivity with the matter and intangible matter and energies of the universe beyond the cope of your real of understanding… it does exist but the corporial form may never acquire this only the evolvement of the form.
