Super Brain: Unleashing the Explosive Power of Your Mind to Maximize Health, Happiness, and Spiritual Well-Being
Format: PDF / Kindle (mobi) / ePub
A manual for relating to the brain in a revolutionary new way, Super Brain shows you how to use your brain as a gateway for achieving health, happiness, and spiritual growth. The authors are two pioneers: bestselling author and physician Deepak Chopra and Harvard Medical School professor Rudolph E. Tanzi, one of the world's foremost experts on the causes of Alzheimer’s. They have merged their wisdom and expertise for a bold new understanding of the “three-pound universe” and its untapped potential.
In contrast to the “baseline brain” that fulfills the tasks of everyday life, Chopra and Tanzi propose that, through a person’s increased self-awareness and conscious intention, the brain can be taught to reach far beyond its present limitations. “We are living in a golden age for brain research, but is this a golden age for your brain?” they ask.
Super Brain explains how it can be, by combining cutting-edge research and spiritual insights, demolishing the five most widespread myths about the brain that limit your potential, and then showing you methods to:
-Use your brain instead of letting it use you
-Create the ideal lifestyle for a healthy brain
-Reduce the risks of aging
-Promote happiness and well-being through the mind-body connection
-Access the enlightened brain, the gateway to freedom and bliss
-Overcome the most common challenges, such as memory loss, depression, anxiety, and obesity
Your brain is capable of incredible healing and constant reshaping. Through a new relationship with your brain you can transform your life. In Super Brain, Chopra and Tanzi guide you on a fascinating journey that envisions a leap in human evolution. The brain is not just the greatest gift that Nature has given us. It’s the gateway to an unlimited future that you can begin to live today.

The qualities of the experience would be your sense of the warm sun, the sound of the surf, and the swaying palm trees—the composite sensation of being on a beach.

Everything that makes the moon real to you—its white radiance, the shadows that play across its surface, its waxing and waning, its orbit around the Earth—happens via your brain. Every aspect of reality is born “in here” as an experience. Even science, objective as it tries to be, is an activity taking place in

One child survived for three months, the other for a year. If this were not remarkable enough, a colleague at

That’s why it would take an infinite nervous system to actually perceive “real” reality. Instead, we make brain pictures that we call reality, even though these pictures are very limited. The only world that exists for human beings mirrors the evolution of the human nervous system. Brain pictures evolve. The
