From the Publisher

1. What do you mean, “neurodharma?”

We’ve learned so much about the brain over the past twenty years. This gives us anhistorically unprecedented opportunity to combine this scientific knowledge with the deep understanding of the mind developed in the world’s wisdom traditions. As a psychologist, I’ve drawn on the original teachings of the Buddha, which are practical, notbased on faith, penetrating, and effective.

Dharma is a word from India that essentially means “the truth of things.” Neurodharma means grounding the truth of our minds—our joys and sorrows, our suffering and happiness—in the truth of our own bodies. Which is very useful!

2. Why bring in brain science?

Knowing something about how your brain works helps you understand yourself better—and learn how to get less irritated by hassles or develop good habits that stick. This grounding in science cuts through mystical mumbo-jumbo. Neuroscience is a young science, but we can still begin a kind of reverse-engineering of what could be happening in the brains of remarkable, perhaps even enlightened people. Then we can apply this to ourselves to gradually change our own brains in that direction . . . whether it is to heal old pain, foster everyday well-being, or explore the heights of human potential.

3.What will people get from your book that helps with daily life?

Step-by-step, this book is about becoming as wise and strong—and happy and loving—as every person can be. It’s inspired by the great sages and teachers, while also being very down-to-earth.

With friendly encouragement and lots of practical suggestions, I show readers how to experience real inner peace, contentment, and unconditional love amidst the challenges of life—and fulfill the deepest longings of their heart.

It is full of hope that there are simple things we can do each day, no matter how insane the world is around us, to establish lasting true happiness inside ourselves.

Editorial Reviews


“Marrying science with spiritual practices, bestselling author Rick Hanson shares seven principles to awaken, enlighten, and discover true happiness . . . While meditation, mindfulness and other spiritual practices, including those in his Neurodharma, are truly transformational, the goal is to move from passing states of peace and calm into lasting change in our everyday, waking life.”Elevated Existence Magazine

“Rick Hanson has a rare ability to inspire us to our fullest potential while giving us practical, actionable tools for our everyday lives.”—Marie Forleo, author of Everything Is Figureoutable

“A brilliant and unprecedented offering, Neurodharma will guide you to the upper reaches of your potential as a human being.”—Deepak Chopra, MD, New York Times bestselling author of You Are the Universe and Metahuman

“Rick Hanson’s seven steps of awakening are a remarkable presentation of how the brain, mindfulness, and meditation are interconnected. There is a surprise perhaps for some in his take on nirvana but you have to read the book to find out what it is!”—Sharon Salzberg, author of Lovingkindness and Real Change: Mindfulness to Heal Ourselves and the World

"The Dalai Lama once told me that he loves neuroscience, but that western psychology is still in kindergarten. With this brilliant synthesis, psychology just took a giant leap forward!”—Joan Z. Borysenko, PhD, author of Minding the Body, Mending the Mind

“Rick Hanson has done a remarkable job weaving together the teachings of the Buddha, the insights of neuroscience, and the wisdom of his many years of practice. With great lucidity, this impressive work offers a wide range of teaching instructions that help us realize our highest aspirations.”—Joseph Goldstein, author of Mindfulness: A Practical Guide to Awakening

“Rick Hanson’s brilliance is the capacity to offer practical, powerful, scientifically grounded practices that lead to true happiness and a loving heart. This is an illuminating and transformational book!”—Tara Brach, PhD, author of Radical Acceptance and Radical Compassion 

“Combining a deep understanding of both neuroscience and Buddhist practice and philosophy, Rick Hanson has beautifully created a fascinating synthesis that shows how to train the mind to transform the brain toward health and flourishing.”—Daniel J. Siegel, MD, New York Times bestselling author of Aware: The Science and Practice of Presence and Mind: A Journey to the Heart of Being Human; executive director, Mindsight Institute

“The book has a nice structure, presenting both science and classical spiritual approaches to awakening. [Hanson]’s set the book up to feel like a retreat, presenting concepts in chunks and following them up with guided meditations . . . The more we learn about how our brains work, Hanson shares, the more assuredly we can travel up the path toward the mountain of enlightenment.”Spirituality & Health
