Self-Directed Brain Change is based on a significant emerging insight from neuroscience: that to keep our ancestors alive, the human brain evolved to cling to negative experiences like Velcro and shrug off the positive ones like Teflon. The good news, teaches Rick Hanson, is that we can retrain our neural structure out of "sheer survival" mode and into one of greater well-being, mental clarity, and moment-to-moment appreciation. In this practice-focused program, Dr. Hanson teaches us how to: .Shift our evolutionary fear and survival bias into one of "taking in the good" .Use every positive moment or state to rewire happiness as an enduring neural trait .Work with difficult and painful emotional memories to "fill the hole in the heart" .Increase and deepen our daily experiences of love, gratitude, and contentment .Build inner resilience in the face of stress and challenging situations, improve our interpersonal relationships, and much more Is it possible to rewire yourself for happiness? A growing body of evidence from this pioneering neuropsychologist and his colleagues says yes, we can. And with Self-Directed Brain Change, listeners will learn how.
