Rick Hanson, Ph.D. is a neuropsychologist, international speaker, and bestselling author of Buddha’s Brain, Just One Thing, and his most recent book, Hardwiring Happiness.
Hardwiring Happiness: The New Brain Science of Contentment, Calm, and Confidence, by Rick Hanson, will be discussed for an hour.
The brain is shaped by the mind: neurons that fire together connect together.
Positive experiences are the primary source of brain structures that underpin motivation, self-worth, executive functions, happiness, compassion, resilience, and other inner strengths.
Unfortunately, most happy experiences are squandered on the brain, which acquired a negative bias to aid our ancestors in survival.
It’s like Velcro for negative experiences and Teflon for positive ones. Rick Hanson will describe the four easy HEAL processes of taking in the good to tackle this problem, which transform transitory events into enduring cerebral resources to increase confidence, concentrate attention, lessen fear, and essentially hardwire happiness into the brain.
