The latest findings in neuroscience offer us a wonderful operating manual for the human brain. We can infer from the latest research a clarifying understanding of the strengths — and liabilities — of our inbuilt, hard-wired neurological tendencies.
With that, and a toolbox of techniques based on that understanding, you can then use your mind and heart and behavior skillfully—and very effectively—to actually change your brain, gradually, over time.
This will naturally also change your mind over time in profound and real ways. Only in the last ten years or so has brain science acquired enough information to make this kind of insight possible.
Terry and Rick will dialog about “the paranoid trance” that human beings tend easily to fall into, and how we can understand ourselves to escape it for more freedom, happiness, and effectiveness in our lives.
