As Dr. Hanson says:

“The deepest roots of the highest happiness are in the body. At the intersection of modern science and ancient wisdom – which could be called neurodharma – we can find very effective tools for resilient well-being.”

    Dear Dr. Hanson,

    I had not had the chance to hear you before, though I have been a meditator in Shambhala since 1981…
    I live in Mexico, in a small town, Tepoztlan, where we have a meditation center. I work as a physician, acupuncturist and homeopath, and teach regularly in our center.
    I am very grateful for being able to connect at this time of “isolation” and for your generous offerings. I find your way of talking about working with ourselves at this time a very beautiful fusion of ancient teachings and modern science, but also your kindness and clarity are a gift.

    Muchas gracias

    As I watch you speak, I am realizing how much calmer and I feel. I didn’t realize how looking outward rather than inward is calming. I also realized that when I think of someone who makes me smile and loved is something I can visualize. Thank you.

    How can I trigger myself to calm down quickly when I get wound up about anything, and can’t get calm?
