Meditation, Neuroscience, & Happiness: Dialogue with Rick Hanson, Ph.D.

brain head

Neuroscience is providing a wealth of information about the benefits of meditation.

Rick Hanson, Ph.D. curates and translates this information into useable wisdom. He’s a brilliant teacher. That’s why I’m so pleased that my conversation with Rick is the first in our new series of Wisdom Heart Dialogues.

I’ve known Rick for about two years. He’s been a wonderful supporter of our work at Wisdom Heart and an inspiring mentor for bringing wisdom teachings alive in a contemporary context. He’s new book Hardwiring Happiness is a NY Times bestseller and a fantastic resource.

More than that, he’s a mensch—whose own deep practice comes streaming through in his clear presentation of how science and dharma can dance together in our lives.
