Présentation de l'éditeur
In Rewire Your Brain for Love, neuropsychologist Marsha Lucas brings together neuroscience and mindfulness meditation in an exciting program to help readers create and sustain better, healthier, juicier romantic relationships.
With a passion for neuroscience and the ability to relay it in a clear, unintimidating - and funny - manner, Lucas delves into how the human brain works in relationships, exploring the neurological connections that fuel our reactions. In an inviting and reassuring tone, she describes how we developed our current relationship wiring and how to modify it through mindfulness meditation. Focusing on nine high-voltage benefits, Lucas shows how a short daily meditation practice can change the way you interact with everyone around you...especially those closest to you. The benefits include things such as enhanced fear modulation, increased emotional resiliency, better response flexibility, greater insight/self-knowledge, more attuned communication, and enhanced empathy.
Each chapter focuses on one of these benefits and includes an in-depth description of exactly what that benefit is and how it will improve the reader's life. She looks at the science and research associated with mindfulness meditation in relation to each benefit, and then provides readers with a specific meditation to help bring that benefit into their relationships.
Imagine, instead of blowing up at an off-hand statement your partner makes, you are able to stop, breathe and respond in a thoughtful manner. And as the author says, 'You don't have to become a monk, or a vegetarian, or spend hours contemplating your navel'; you simply need to notice your mind's busyness and not get all tangled up in it. This simple process truly can change your life.--Ce texte fait référence à l'édition Broché .

Dr. Lucas has produced a book that has real possibility for folks who are looking for solid, abiding relationships or for those who are seeking to make their relationships better. I like several things about this book but mostly, that the author has given us practical explanations for why and how we create attachments and foster (or sabotage) relationships. Then she helps us to kindly take responsibility for ourselves by offering specific practices to help us "rewire" our patterned responses.
One of the best things (though there are many) about Dr. Lucas' explanations is that she takes complicated, neurological theory and puts it in down-to-earth, comprehensible english. The audience gets a clear picture, sometimes with diagrams, on why and how we respond to particular situations the way we do. I particularly enjoy her humor.
Dr. Lucas explains that there are seven powerful skills that we must develop if we are to cultivate healthy, balanced, fulfilling relationships. She offers doable, step-by-step practices to help us develop personal awareness of our physical and emotional reactions. Then she gives us practical skills to help us change them, develop empathy, shift our perspective, and become much more flexible in our responses to relationship situations.
"Rewire..." is ground-breaking because no one has explained the neurological processes this clearly and offered us the blueprint to change those processes so effectively.
I read this book in one day and am now going back for a deeper journey. It's readable, funny, poignant and practical. Change yourself. Change your relationships. Change your world!
This book takes you through, one step at a time, how to meditate and what happens in the Brain as a result of meditating. It is at once educational, funny, helpful, insightful and incredibly practical.
I found this book enjoyable as well as instructive and will be recommending it to many of my Psychotherapy patients.
Little secret: this book could save you years of therapy!! Armed with an understanding of why the brain falls in love - even a reader without an advanced degree can easily grasp what has gone right/wrong in their lives and then take the steps prescribed in this book to virtually turn around patterns that no longer work. Dr. Lucas navigates you through all of this with an incredible sense of humor to boot! Not only does she pack into her book a complete explanation of our love patterns, but she also teaches you how to meditate - in novel ways. Personally this is the first time I actually meditated . . . after years of trying! The book is a wealth of information. Dr. Lucas marries science with emotion in this incredible book. You will finish it quickly and be much wiser about relationships in your lives (past ones, present ones and future ones). Fasten your seat belt for some ground breaking turf ahead.
But she does not stop at anatomy and physiology. Middle chapters then weave and shape information into a way to achieve a new level of integration which could potentially lead to lasting health and happiness. If you long to understand your way of being in relationships, marvel or work with families, or just want to learn about different ways to achieve some semblence of balance in life - this book is for you.
Final chapters move outward from the individual level, to ways to be connected but differentiated in even the closest of relationships. Core concepts are solidified by excellent and touching real-life patient, couple and family examples. I am still enjoying the transformation this work has caused in my life . Happy rewiring.
So for everyone who appreciates tougher editing, you're duly warned. This was my first Hay House book. Perhaps this style is their hallmark, so I may be complaining about something that was intentional. But it drove me crazy. And I still think a good copy editor would have prevented the author from putting so many "words" in quotation marks.
