Seven Guided Practices to "Rebuild" Your Brain for Lasting Joy and Fulfillment

The structure of your brain changes constantly in a dynamic, unfolding process that you yourself can help direct to create the life you want.

Drawing on a vast body of research spanning more than 30 years, Hanson and Mendius show you how to strengthen the neural circuits that generate happiness, love, and inner peace. Join them to explore fascinating insights about your brain and how you can consciously affect it with good results. Then learn seven guided meditations to reshape your brain, including:

  • "Steadying Your Mind" to tap the full creative power of your attention
  • "Taking in the Good" to maintain a positive emotional landscape
  • "Antidote to Stress," a conscious way to activate your body's relaxation response
  • "Healing Painful Experiences" to free yourself from the charge of negative memories

 

Science has proven what contemplative traditions have taught for centuries: meditation holds a key to a life of balance, peace, and joy.

Whether you're discovering meditation for the first time or looking for a way to deepen an existing practice, with Meditations to Change Your Brain you have a full spectrum of techniques to make your brain your greatest ally on the path to personal fulfillment.
