The Buddha and other great teachers were born with brains built essentially like anyone else's - and then they changed their brains in ways that changed the world.

Science is now revealing how the flow of thoughts actually sculpts the brain. By combining breakthroughs in neuroscience with insights from thousands of years of contemplative practice, you, too, can use your mind to shape your brain for greater happiness, love, and wisdom.

Buddha's Brain draws on the latest research to show how to stimulate and strengthen your brain for more fulfilling relationships, a deeper spiritual life, and a greater sense of inner confidence and worth. You'll learn how to activate the brain states of calm, joy, and compassion instead of worry, sorrow, and anger. This clear, down-to-earth book is filled with practical tools and skills that you can use in daily life to tap the unused potential of your brain and rewire it over time for greater well-being and peace of mind.

    " Fascinating explanation of current brain research leverage against some basic Zen teachings. Reinvigorated my meditation. "

    " Excellent book about the neuroscience of happiness. I learned alot about the brain, and how we're wired as human beings. It's helpful knowledge in understanding how to better work with our own brain to increase our level of wellbeing and joy, while reducing unnecessary stress and unhappiness. Several good recommendations for a regular meditation practice. Highly recommended. "

    " I'm listening to the audible version of this book. Sometimes it is heavy heavy science - physiology of the brain. A necessary evil to explain how things function. The concepts are amazing - and if adopted by a person could change their life. But so could becoming a triathlete. Takes major dedication. Time to roll up the mental sleeves! "

    " A BCBC selection for August. While quite heavy on the brain science - I still think this book has some spot on great suggestions for how to use your brain to change your mind. My book is all tabbed-up, always a sign that I enjoyed a book. I have read or tried to read a lot of books on how to "think happy" and I found this one pretty helpful. "
