Being Well Podcast: The Highest Happiness

Being Well Podcast: The Highest Happiness

This is the second conversation related to my new book Neurodharma: New Science, Ancient Wisdom, and Seven Practices of the Highest Happiness. Today we’re focusing on the final four practices in the book: wholeness, nowness, allness, and timelessness. 

 Underlying that is a question that feels particularly relevant these days: why aim for the “heights of human potential” when simply surviving the here-and-now already feels so challenging?

 As a quick note, if you want even more content related to the topics explored in these episodes, I recently launched my new online program based on Neurodharma. Registration is now open, and podcast listeners can enter the code BEINGWELL at checkout for 10% off the purchase price. If you register by May 8, you’ll also get a free hardcover copy of Neurodharma and a signed print from me!
