If anything were possible, what would you like to see in your life?
How would you like to grow? And what's stopping you? In The
Neuroscience of Change
, Dr. Kelly McGonigal weaves the newest findings
of science with Eastern contemplative wisdom to give listeners a
revolutionary process for personal transformation. Six sessions provide
breakthrough ideas supported by clinical research, guided practices, and
real-world exercises for making self-awareness and compassion the basis
for meaningful change, choosing deep "wantpower" instead of brute willpower,
dealing with setbacks and the inner critic, and more.
