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.

Professional reviews

"The meeting between Buddhism and neuroscience has been explored a lot recently. Scientists are working with practitioners of meditation to find how techniques developed thousands of years ago can help people improve their moods, manage pain, and change their behavior. While some of the physiological concepts can be a bit hard to follow, narrator Alan Bomar Jones narrates at just the right speed so the information doesn't hit a bottleneck between your ears and brain. His reading is friendly and calm, and he makes the big questions more accessible. Listeners can certainly benefit from this discussion of how the brain works and learn how meditation can help us understand suffering, happiness, love, and wisdom. K.M.
