A major work on the powers of the brain, full of the latest research, and how to put this into practise in our own lives.
Two pioneers in health--Deepak Chopra and Rudolph E. Tanzi, one of the world's foremost experts on the causes of Alzheimer's--share a bold new understanding of the brain and a prescriptive plan for how we can use it to achieve physical, mental and spiritual well-being.
In his bestselling books Ageless Body, Timeless Mind and Reinventing the Body, Resurrecting the Soul, Deepak Chopra reveals 'the forgotten miracle' - the body's infinite capacity for change and renewal. Now, Chopra focuses his attention on a part of the body undergoing intense study and radical reevaluation: the brain. No one is better able to share the latest breakthroughs in neuroscience than preeminent neurologist Rudolph E. Tanzi and, together, Chopra and Tanzi present a new vision of the brain grounded in both science and spirituality and a plan for how to use it to achieve higher levels of success and fulfilment.
Arguing against the predominantly held belief that the physical brain is in charge of the mind, they contend that the mind controls the brain and that through practices like mindfulness, intention and meditation, we can create new neural pathways in the brain. Thus, we can transform it into our most powerful tool for achieving health, happiness and enlightenment.
