Product Details


“Excellent . . . elegant and lucid prose . . . an open mind here will be rewarded.”Discover
“A strong dose of hope along with a strong does of science and Buddhist thought.”The San Diego Union-Tribune

“There are two great things about this book. One is that it shows us how nothing about our brains is set in stone. The other is that it is written by Sharon Begley, one of the best science writers around. Begley is superb at framing the latest facts within the larger context of the field. She also gives us the back stories that reveal how human the process of science research is. This is a terrific book.”—Robert Sapolsky, author of Why Zebras Don’t Get Ulcers

“Reading this book is like opening doors in the mind. Sharon Begley brings the reader right to the intersection of scientific and meditative understanding, a place of exciting potential for personal and global transformation. And she does it so skillfully as to seem effortless.”—Sharon Salzberg, author of Faith: Trusting Your Own Deepest Experience

“It is very seldom that a science in its infancy is so skillfully unpacked that it reads like a detective novel. The fact that this science includes collaborative efforts of neuroscientists, psychologists, contemplatives, philosophers, and the full engagement of the genius of the Dalai Lama is not only fascinating, but uplifting and inspiring. This book lets you know that how you pay attention to your experience can change your entire way of being.”—Jon Kabat-Zinn, author of Coming to Our Senses

“I have meditated for forty years, and have long felt that the potential of mind training to improve our emotional, physical, and spiritual well-being has barely been tapped. Thanks to Sharon Begley’s fascinating book, though, that is about to change.  As human beings, we really do have inner powers that can make a world of difference, particularly if our goal is not merely to advance our own agendas, but to cultivate compassion for the benefit of all living beings.”—John Robbins, author of Healthy at 100 and Diet For a New America

“This is a truly illuminating and eminently readable book on the revolutionary new insights in mind sciences. I recommend it highly to anyone interested in understanding human potential.”—Jack Kornfield, author of A Path with Heart
