    Hardwiring Happiness with Dr. Rick Hanson on The Empowerment Show

    in Psychology

    Buddha’s Brain by Dr. Rick Hanson is one of the books that changed my life.  In this book Dr. Hanson provided concrete scientific proof that we can improve our experiences by retraining our brain.  The concept of neuroplasticity was instrumental in changing my life and the lives of my clients. 

    In Buddha’s Brain, Dr. Hanson explores the plasticity of the brain and how religious, spiritual and ancient practices of meditation and pray affect how the brain factions.  His new book, Hardwiring Happiness:  The New Brain Science of Contentment, Calm and Confidence, builds on this concept and provides very practical tactical ways we can rewire our brains to experience more happiness. 

    For survival, our brains are naturally programmed to focus on the negative.  If we want to program our minds to be positive, it is necessary to continuously exercise the parts of our brains that bring us joy.  One simple way to do this is to be conscious of your thoughts throughout the day and when you experience something that brings you joy, spend twenty to thirty seconds truly focused and aware of this joy.  This simple process helps your brain store this feeling.

    Listen as Dr. Rick Hanson neuropsychologist and member of University of California Berkeley’s Greater Good Science Center’s advisory board explores:

    How to use the concept of neurons that wire together fire together to make changes in how you experience life
    How to retrain the emotional learning in the brain
    The two part process to reprogram one’s brain using Activation & Installation
    The dirty secret of coaching and psychology 
    The “how” of personal growth
    How to keep the accumulation of negativity from building.

She received her medical degree in 1983 from Johns Hopkins University, and stayed to complete postdoctoral training in medicine, neurology, and psychiatry.In January 1987 she trained for six months at The Institute of Psychiatry in London, England with Sir Michael Rutter, who was knighted for his work on autism. In July 1987, Dr. Powell joined the faculty of Harvard Medical School where she taught neuropsychiatry, and gained experience in cross-cultural psychiatry and mind-body medicine. She moved in July 1989 to engage in molecular biology research at the University of California at San Diego during the Human Genome Project.The deeper her studies of neuroscience took her, the more apparent it became that the mysteries of human consciousness could not be understood through mainstream theories. Her research interests include the neuroscience of extraordinary states of human consciousness and anomalous experiences, discussed in detail in her 2008 book The ESP Enigma: A Scientific Case for Psychic Phenomena. In 2010, she was invited to participate in a private symposium on Wasan Island, sponsored by the Brueninger Foundation. Jeff Kripal, Sudhir Kakar and Dean Radin and others also attended. The 2012 book, Seriously Strange: Thinking Anew about Psychical Experiences, is an academic compilation that arose from this gathering with each participant contributing a chapter. In January of this year she traveled to India to evaluate autistic savants as part of her ongoing research for her next book.
