    Science is now revealing how the flow of thoughts actually sculpts the brain. By combining breakthroughs in neuroscience with insights from thousands of years of contemplative practice, you, too, can use your mind to shape your brain for greater happiness, love, and wisdom.

    If you could sum up Buddha's Brain in three words, what would they be?

    informative, thought-provoking, ah-ha


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The authors write about dart throwing. Darts are comments that might be taken as offensive or hurtful to the receiver of those words. I was made aware of how easy it is to fall into a cycle of dart throwing.First dart thrown receives a second dart back from the receiver who chooses to respond to the first dart. Dart three is then returneded by speaker one who does not allow speaker two to have the last word, and on and on. Worst case scenario of this pattern of dart throwing is that it can warp one's perception so that darts are seen where there actually is no dart. Anticipation of the dart is enough to make it real.


    Any additional comments?

    This book is not one that can be read or listened to only once. Being a long time out of a college biology class, the anatomical terms used in the first half of the book, although familiar, needed dusting off. I relistened to the first six chapters multiple times, and it was worth the doing because I was able to fully enjoy the practical suggestions in the latter half of the book.

    If you're a woman who is now or is soon to be experiencing menopause, a word of warning from Joan Borysenko, PhD: You are about to become a force to be reckoned with. In this guided meditation, she invites you to meet your wisdom self, the stable ground that will allow you to take charge of your biology and spirituality and to harness the surge of new energies and drives that arise in midlife.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Morning and Evening to be better than the print version?

    I preser the audio version of any meditation book. While my husband drives to work. I have time to complete the exercises


    Have you listened to any of Marianne Williamson’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No, but I intend to do so
