The authors are two pioneers: one a bestselling author and physician, and the other a Harvard Medical School professor and one of the world's foremost experts on the causes of Alzheimer's disease. They have merged their wisdom and expertise for a new understanding of the "three-pound universe" and its untapped potential. In contrast to the "baseline brain" that fulfills the tasks of everyday life, they propose that, through a person's increased self-awareness and conscious intention, the brain can be taught to reach far beyond its present limitations. "We are living in a golden age for brain research, but is this a golden age for your brain?" they ask. They contend that by using techniques and skills such as mindfulness, intention and meditation, we can create new neural pathways in the brain. This book explains how it can be a golden age for the brain, by combining cutting-edge research and spiritual insights, demolishing the five most widespread myths about the brain that limit potential, and then showing methods to: use your brain instead of letting it use you ; create the ideal lifestyle for a healthy brain ; reduce the risks of aging ; promote happiness and well-being through the mind-body connection ; access the enlightened brain, the gateway to freedom and bliss ; overcome the most common challenges, such as memory loss, depression, anxiety, and obesity. The brain is capable of incredible healing and constant reshaping, and through a new relationship with your brain you can transform your life. In this guide the authors envision a leap in human evolution, teaching that the brain is not just the greatest gift that Nature has given us, it is the gateway to an unlimited future.
