The Neuroscience of Zen: Happiness, Love and Wisdom
Rick Hanson is a neuropsychologist and senior fellow of the Greater Good Science Center at UC Berkeley. He is co-founder of the Wellspring Institute for Neuroscience and Contemplative Wisdom, and has taught in meditation centers worldwide. Hanson's work considers the historically unprecedented meeting of modern brain science and ancient contemplative practices. His book "Buddha's Brain: The Practical Neuroscience of Happiness, Love and Wisdom" shows readers many effective ways to light up the brain circuits that relieve worry and stress, and promote positive relationships and inner peace. Hanson appeared in conversation with Pamela Weiss, an executive coach and the founder and chief wisdom officer of Appropriate Response, a company dedicated to bringing mindful awareness into the workplace.
