Overview

Yes, you can teach your old brain new tricks! Breakthroughs in the scientific understanding of how the brain works have shown us that our brains are constantly rewiring themselves in response to events in our lives.

This handbook applies this new science in practical ways, by giving us a training program to repattern our behavior, and thereby change the ways our brain is wired. It counteracts what the Buddha called "suffering" and modern psychologists call "stress." It interrupts our suffering, sharpens our mental abilities, and corrects our cognitive imbalances. As we learn these mental skills, the neural patterns of our brains start to change, and we literally reprogram the neural networks through which information and energy flows, for peace, creativity, and happiness.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
A therapist, trainer, and longtime meditator, Lind-Kyle (When Sleeping Beauty Wakes Up) writes superbly about the relationship between meditation and the brain. Dividing her book into two sections, she begins with an in-depth scientific discussion of the anatomy of the brain, its evolution, and how our thought processes work. Using an electroencephalograph, Lind-Kyle has been able to measure and monitor mind states and identify when brain waves are out of balance. She presents brain research that shows how meditation can reshape the nature of the mind. In Part 2, readers will find detailed discussion of how using mind-training techniques can help them access the centers of the brain in order to bring about change in their mindset and thought patterns. With the use of a meditation CD, the author leads readers through several meditation techniques. VERDICT For those who just want to learn how to meditate, there are other books, e.g., Paul Wilson's Finding the Quiet, that will satisfy. For those who also want to know why it works, this book is a great resource.—Phyllis Goodman, West Chester Lib., OH

    My Mind Can Do What?

    Heal Your Mind, Rewire Your Brain: Applying the
    Exciting New Science of Brain Synchrony for
    Creativity, Peace and Presence
    Author: Patt Lind-Kyle
    Publisher: Energy Psychology Press
    ISBN: 978-1-60415-056-8

    The Brain : Is there a more fascinating and complex organ in the body? Often studied and just as often misunderstood, science, medicine and psychology have made great strides in the study of the brain.

    Author Patt Lind-Kyle offers the reader a fascinating and indepth look at the last decade of the scientific breakthroughs in brain studies. The reader is given a better understanding of how the brain works and how it is constantly evolving. New studies have shown that by using mental training practices, we can transform our life and increase our emotional balance and wellbeing.

    The first part of the book serves as a strong starting point to understanding the human brain, how it developed and how it affects all aspects of our lives. Part two teaches the reader meditations and tools to deal with challenges and changes. You will get a thorough understanding of brain wave patterns, the key neurotransmitter chemicals and the various brain centers.

    The author has presented this work in an engaging and well organized style. Written with the layperson, student and professional in mind, it will be of tremendous aid to understanding how to help your mind work for you, your needs and areas you may feel weak in. Anyone with an interest in how our brain works and how thought processes can change our lives will thoroughly enjoy this book, and find a vast amount of new knowledge.

    Ahead of it's time

    Books on brian research and neuroscience are now pretty much mainstream. But one that provides a vital link between ancient wisdom and modern neuroscience is very rare. And one that does that in a simple and lucid manner is still rarer. Patt's book does exactly that.

    You are certain to have frequent 'Aha!' moments while you read this book. In fact i strongly suggest you don't just read the book but study and contemplate on this book.

    Meditation techniques have been flogged to death in books after books. But it is seldom that one is told in the language of modern sciences what goes on in your brain and body while you meditate. This book does that.

    Patt's thinking is profoundly influenced by the wisdom of yore and she makes frequent references to Buddhist practices and methods. She weaves the traditional with the modern with the mastery of one who has not only experienced truth directly but is able to articulate it in the language of the lay man.

    This book could be the missing piece of the jigsaw for students of traditional scriptures who wanted to relate the same to empirical sciences.

    If there is anything to complain - well, this book would seem a bit ahead of it's time for some. But for those who got the big picture, this is the kind of book you want to shout about to everyone you pass on the streets.
