Neuroscientific Secrets to Happiness
Wisdom Quarterly; KPFK.org (818-985-KPFK), TheAwareShow.com, Neuroscientific Secrets
Breathe, raise your arms, stretch your legs, relax, touch your skin -- and relax into a listening mode. Pacifica Radio Los Angeles (KPFK FM) is on fund drive, and Lisa Garr is talking to renowned neuroscientific researcher Mark Waldman.
Waldman guides listeners through experiential lessons derived from scientific research that open the mind and heart to the inner wisdom of the brain. The secret to weight loss? Mindful eating. The secret to better communication? Slowly say one sentence at a time then listen (because the mind can only hold a limited amount of information for a short time). This gives rise to empathy and mutual understanding, which leads to better relationships.
Learn how certain words can turn on genes that lower anxiety and stress. Discover what the most dangerous word in the world is (alluded to above) and why the gut is more trustworthy than the heart when it comes to true love. There is a neuroscientific basis to the laws of attraction that allow us to make permanent changes to the brain. This allows us to achieve inner peace, lasting happiness, and greater success in the world. Listen LIVE
