2.0 out of 5 starsI don't feel like this was very helpful
Reviewed in the United States on April 23, 2017
I don't feel like this was very helpful. He basically just says, imagine yourself feeling "x"---REALLY feeling "x" then pauses for a long time. Very much focused on feeling ok in the present moment, not really addressing deeper change. I didn't even bother listening all the way through the last cd; it felt like a waste of time to me..
I agree with the premise of the changing brain, so I was hoping for a bit more "meat.". For me, there is a bit too much self-hypnosis and a lot of empty, quiet time on the CD. I can do that on my own. I thought Dr. Hanson sounded like he was talking to a child sometimes. I'd choose Pema Chodron CDs over these.
5.0 out of 5 starsWays to Take in the Good and Change Your Brain
Reviewed in the United States on August 24, 2014
Rick Hanson has a wonderful engaging manner. I purchased his audio of the book. He uses examples from his own experience to bring across ideas in a real and kind way. The step by step practices are clear and attainable. Taking in the good, is a great way to change the brain's natural inclination to scan for the negative. I really enjoy the way Rick Hanson has organised the material. I would highly recommend this book or audio edition, for anyone wanting to bring about lasting change for the positive and the good.
