With the new breakthroughs in neuroscience, combined with insights from thousands of years of contemplative practice, you, too, can shape your own brain for greater happiness, love, and wisdom.
Based on the bestselling book, Buddha’s Brain, this app will show you how to rewire your brain over time, including how to:
· Take in good experiences to feel happier and more confident
· Cool down stress, anxiety, sorrow, frustration, and anger
· Energize the neural networks of compassion, empathy, and love – and clear out resentment, envy, guilt, and loss
· Improve attention for daily life, mindfulness, and meditation
· Feel more at one with the world, and less separate and vulnerable
Your brain is the foundation of your well-being, relationships, and actions. If you can change your brain, you can change your life.
(The app now also includes 40+ minutes of bonus audio content from Rick Hanson.)

Ratings and Reviews
The other reviewers don't give this app the justice it deserves. The audio quality isn't 5 star, but the content is excellent. I find Dr. Hanson's voice soothing and healing. Coming from someone that is very motivated to overcome a serious bout of depression, anxiety, panic & bereavement struggles, this app presented itself at a time I really needed it. I like to listen to it while falling asleep. It has helped me tremendously.
Doesn't take advantage of iPhone/iPad graphics
The sentiments voiced in this app can be helpful, but if you subscribe to Rick's JOTs, you get them in email anyway. This is essentially a text only (and very wordy) application that takes no advantage whatever of the graphics capabilities of the iPhone/iPad. The most graphical thing about it is the icon of the Buddha you use to enter the application. After that, it's just strings of text and menus of the kind you might see on a PC. Especially for $4.99, I would expect a better iPhone app. Contrast for example the Abraham card decks on the iPhone, which in my opinion offer an example of motivational sayings for the iPhone done in a way that has nice graphics and takes advantage of the iPhone touch screen.
Goods with room for improvement...
I own the book that this app is based on and appreciate having all exercises at hand so easily. Guided audio versions of at least some of the exercises would be a great next step in the development of this app!
