Neurodharma: New Science, Ancient Wisdom, and Seven Practices of the Highest Happiness Audible Audiobook – Unabridged
“This deeply researched and compassionate guide offers an easy-to-follow road map for creating day-to-day inner peace in today’s increasingly complex world.” (Lori Gottlieb, New York Times best-selling author of Maybe You Should Talk to Someone)
Throughout history, people have sought the heights of human potential - to become as wise and strong, happy and loving, as any person can ever be. And now recent science is revealing how these remarkable ways of being are based on equally remarkable changes in our own nervous system, making them more attainable than ever before.
In Neurodharma, the follow-up to his classic Buddha’s Brain, New York Times best-selling author Rick Hanson, PhD, not only explores the new neuroscience of awakening, but also offers a bold yet plausible plan for reverse-engineering peak experiences, sense of oneness, and even enlightenment itself. And he does so with his trademark blend of solid science and warm encouragement, guiding you along this high-reaching path with good humor, accessible tools, and personal examples. A groundbreaking yet practical audiobook, Neurodharma shares seven practices for strengthening the neural circuitry of profound contentment and inner peace - qualities that offer essential support in everyday life while also supporting the exploration of the most radical reaches of human consciousness. Step by step, this audiobook explains how to apply these insights in order to cultivate unshakable presence of mind, a courageous heart, and serenity in a changing world. The breakthroughs of the great teachers are not reserved for the chosen few. Dr. Hanson shows how we can embody them ourselves in daily life to handle stress, heal old pain, feel at ease with others, and rest in the sense of our natural goodness.
The Buddha didn’t use an MRI to become enlightened. Still, 2,500 years after he walked the dusty roads of Northern India, neuroscientists are discovering the mechanisms of the brain that underpin the Buddha’s penetrating analysis of the mind. With deep research, stories, guided meditations, examples, and applications, Dr. Hanson offers a fascinating, inspiring vision of who we can be - and an effective path for fulfilling this wonderful possibility.

I always read self-help books with pencil in hand so that I can underline new and insightful concepts in the books, and go back to them for reference. I literally did not underline even ONE sentence in this book!
Again, if you are a human being of even average intelligence and have read even one or two basic self-help books, this book will add absolutely NOTHING to what you already know.
You would think that a guy who has written four or five previous books would wait until he had some actual new information and insights to cover before writing a new book. Unfortunately, he didn't. He just repeated what hundreds of other writers have covered in hundreds of other books over the past several decades.
Variety of mindfulness techniques are simplified, easy to understand and it’s effectiveness on brain is presented with extensive research. Neurodharma is Buddhist principle for living an awakened life. Rick Hanson verified this ancient knowledge with neuroscience for its effectiveness.I would recommend this book for anyone who is on the journey of awakening and living a happier life.
There is no neuroscience here, except in 2 pages:
- page 117: "experiences of contentment lower stress by engaging the parasympathetic nervous system and decreasing activity in the flight-or-fight sympathetic nervous system".
- page 259: this is in the NOTES section "neural basis of these mental factors" where the author refers readers to read about neuroscience in other works by other authors.

Neurodharma contains practical advice based on the latest current thinking, supported by ancient learnings and understanding. An easy read, with many simple ‘take outs’ to apply on a daily basis.
Yet again, Rick Hanson has written another must have book.
Neurodharma is his latest, clearest and deepest dive by far. If you have read his earlier books you will see the progression of the author's understanding and his own practice. And in the clarity of his writing. The only way someone could write a book like this is to have a deep personal practice and have personal experiences in these realms. Neurodharma is clear and insightful on so many levels. It has given me increased clarity on the workings of my own mind and new tools to help me grow and deepen my own practice. For that I am grateful! Thank you Dr. Hanson - I look forward to digesting this further over multiple re-reads and will watch for your future work!
