“A fascinating treatise on the power of the brain to aid you in improving yourself and your life.”
Major breakthroughs in neuroscience are all pointing in the same direction – the human brain can do far more than anyone ever thought. In SUPER BRAIN: Unleashing the Explosive Power of Your Mind to Maximize Health, Happiness, and Spiritual Well-Being (Harmony Books; November 6, 2012; $25.00) two pioneers in health combine cutting-edge research and age-old spiritual wisdom—linking the science with aspirations for health, well-being, and spiritual realization like no else can. Bestselling author and physician Deepak Chopra and Harvard Medical School Professor Rudolph E. Tanzi, combine their wisdom and expertise to demonstrate that through increased self-awareness and conscious intention, you can train your brain to overcome everyday challenges such as memory loss, depression, anxiety, and weight gain. “Contrary to outworn beliefs,” they explain, “the brain’s limitations are imposed by us, not by its physical shortcomings.” Once the mind unleashes its profound power, the result will be greater awareness, a healthier body, a happier disposition, and unlimited personal growth.
In the book, they demolish the five most widespread myths about the brain, including:
The injured brain cannot heal itself Now we know that the brain has amazing powers of healing, unsuspected in the past
The brain’s hard wiring cannot be changed In fact, the line between hard and soft wiring is shifting all the time and our ability to rewire our brains remains intact from birth to the end of life
Aging in the brain is inevitable and irreversible To counter this outmoded belief, new technologies for keeping the brain youthful and retaining mental acuity are rising every day
The brain loses millions of cells a day and cannot be replaced In fact, the brain contains stem cells that are capable of maturing into new brain cells through life
Primitive reactions (fear, anger, jealousy, aggression) overrule the higher brain Because our brains are imprinted with genetic memory over thousands of generations, the lower brain is still with us, but we have gained the ability to mater the lower brain through choice and free will.
The old view made the brain seem fixed, mechanical and steadily deteriorating. This is far from the case. In fact, the authors explain, you are creating reality at this very minute, and if that process remains alive and dynamic, your brain will be able to keep you with it, year after year. The book reveals how to:
Reduce the risks of aging
Promote happiness and well-being through the mind-body connection
Create the ideal lifestyle for a healthy brain
Use your brain instead of letting it use you.
Access the enlightened brain, the gateway to freedom and bliss.
Super Brain represents the efforts of two serious investigators, both coming from medicine, to see as far into the mind-brain connection as possible. For anyone who wants to achieve heath, happiness and spiritual growth, Super Brain is a must-read manual for relating to the brain in a revolutionary new way.
