Buddha’s Brain review

buddhas brain

Goodreads:

With the new breakthroughs in neuroscience, combined with the insights from thousands of years of contemplative practice, you, too, can shape your own brain for greater happiness, love, and wisdom.

Buddha’s Brain joins the forces of modern science with ancient teachings to show readers how to have greater emotional balance in turbulent times, as well as healthier relationships, more effective actions, and a deeper religious or spiritual practice.

Well-referenced and grounded in science, the book is full of practical tools and skills readers can use in daily life to tap the unused potential of the brain-and rewire it over time for greater peace and well-being.

If you can change your brain, you can change your life

Well, I don’t know where to begin with any of this.  This book has some great pointers and information about attaining a greater balance in your life and how to have healthier relationships.  The problem is, I found it so hard to follow and understand with any degree of usefulness.  While it says it is for the common layperson, I found it to be difficult.

That said, it isn’t a bad book – just not something that I could get into.

One thought on “Buddha’s Brain review

  1. Books like this one can often times either come across as vaguely inspired and inspiring or, just as easily full of hot air. I can, at turns, be a sucker for them or roll my eyes at them. Sounds like you might not be much different..
