Neurodharma: New Science, Ancient Wisdom
 
with Rick Hanson
 
Friday, May 8th, 2020 | 7:00pm – 9:00pm
Co-sponsored by the Nalanda Institute

 
 

 
In Neurodharma: New Science, Ancient Wisdom, and Seven Practices of the Highest Happiness, the follow-up to his classic Buddha’s Brain, New York Times bestselling author Rick Hanson, PhD, not only explores the new neuroscience of awakening but also offers a bold yet plausible plan for reverse-engineering peak experiences, sense of oneness, and even enlightenment itself. And he does so with his trademark blend of solid science and warm encouragement, guiding you along this high-reaching path with good humor, accessible tools, and personal examples.

A groundbreaking yet practical book, Neurodharma shares seven practices for strengthening the neural circuitry of profound contentment and inner peace—qualities that offer essential support in everyday life while also supporting the exploration of the most radical reaches of human consciousness. Step by step, this book explains how to apply these insights in order to cultivate unshakable presence of mind, a courageous heart, and serenity in a changing world. The breakthroughs of the great teachers are not reserved for the chosen few. Dr. Hanson shows how we can embody them ourselves in daily life to handle stress, heal old pain, feel at ease with others, and rest in the sense of our natural goodness.

Neurodharma is the key to liberating your heart and mind, discovering freedom from suffering and embracing a life of inner peace. This evening will include a short sit, a talk, and a Q&A session about the ideas presented in the book. All are welcome.
