If you’ve ever wanted more happiness during this exceptionally trying time, then do we have the Neurodharma show for you.

Today I’ll be talking with Dr. Rick Hanson, neuro-psychologist, brain expert, and the best-selling author of “Hardwiring Happiness”, “Just One Thing”, “The Buddha’s Brain”, “Resilient”, and his latest incredibly peaceful and enlightening book, “Neurodharma”

And that’s just what I want to talk with him about today, about new science, ancient wisdom, and practices of the highest happiness for this interesting time.

Key Points Discussed:

  • As a neuroscientist, with everything that is going on in the world today, what is going on with our minds? (03:22)
  • The worldwide alarm and concern that people have been trying to make sense of and how he’s helping people find their footing and build up calm strength (04:52)
  • Knowing ourselves scientifically, biologically, neurologically, and from the inside out through modern psychological and the perennial wisdom of the ages (07:00)
  • Our vulnerability to negative learning, why we should avoid the news, and what we should do so that we are not hardwiring our minds for anger (08:34)
  • Letting be, letting go, and letting in: Three ways to productively and helpfully engage our brains (13:10)
  • Taking the power that we have to shift the underlying physical factors in our brain and nervous system to guide ourselves to a better place (20:20) 
  • Using flowers to crowd out and uproot the weeds that linger in our minds (25:00)
  • Linking the negativity we are exposed to to positive habits so we can go to a place of gratitude instead of dwelling on the negativity (29:30)
  • The healing opportunity that is coming with the current pandemic (35:18)
  • Looking for ways to grow strengths within ourselves that are hard-wired in our nervous system (37:32)
  • 15 seconds of close contact with the Dalai Lama and what we can learn from him (40:15)
  • Doing what is conducive to the welfare and happiness of others (45:00)
  • The importance of bringing things back to compassion and loving-kindness in our relationships with others and ourselves (49:50)
  • Appreciating ourselves and others genuinely especially during this time (53:22)

    The Piketon Massacre
    The Piketon Massacre
    On the night of April 21, 2016 in rural Piketon, Ohio - eight members of the Rhoden family were viciously murdered execution style in their homes. Two years later in 2018, their neighbors, the Wagners, were arrested and charged with committing the largest massacre in Ohio’s history. Shocked by the arrests, this once close-knit and religious community remains divided and unable to cope. Was a respected and reputable Piketon family responsible for this unimaginable murder spree? Our team will examine the deep ties that connected both families. We’ll examine the evidence and possible motives for the crimes. For the first time we’ll speak with townspeople, psychological experts, respected investigators, friends and members of both families. Are the Wagners responsible for the murders, and if convicted, will they be executed? Or is it possible that there is still a murderer at large waiting to kill again?
