#118: Dr Rick Hanson - Neuroscience, Ancient Wisdom & Practises For The Highest Happiness

Today on the show, we are joined by New York Times Best-selling author, clinical psychologist and professor Dr Rick Hanson.

Rick’s past books include Buddha’s Brain: The Neuroscience of Happiness, Love and Wisdom, Hardwiring Happiness, and his latest book is called Neurodharma. Rick has spoken at Nasa, as well as at Harvard, Oxford, Stanford and other major unitversities.

In today’s episode, you will learn about the 7 practises that Rick has found for the highest happiness. He found these by looking all the way back through history at individuals like the Buddha and other enlightened individuals. He also combines those teachings with modern neuroscience.

In this episode Rick discusses practical suggestions, offers an inspiring vision of who we can be – and an effective path for embodying this wonderful possibility.

Before we begin, just as a reminder the video episode of this interview is up on our Youtube channel. The link below to our healthy, wealthy & wise newsletter is below and if you could get value from our work - a 5* iTunes review helps us massively to get on wonderful guests like Dr Hanson.

I did it again, I recorded this episode without my microphone set up properly and it recorded through my Mac microphone, this is the last time I promise! Fortunately, I’m only the host and not the main speaker so it should be of minimal disturbance to you. Either way I apologise and will do better!

Without any further ado, I hope you enjoy this episode with the enlightened - Dr Rick Hanson.
