Encore: We Are What We Think
March 21, 2017
Hosted by Dr. Carole Lieberman
As we are increasingly driven to distraction in our technology driven world, it gets harder to keep our thoughts straight, no less find time and space for profound thoughts and meditation. Yet today's guest, James Kingsland, author of Siddhartha's Brain: Unlocking the Ancient Science of Enlightenment, explains why it has never been more important - from slowing aging to keeping us sane. Kingsland takes us on a journey, exploring how Siddhartha, better known now as Buddha, achieved enlightenment, and anticipated the findings of cutting-edge science by two millennia. Far from a New Age fad, the principles of meditation have deep scientific support for their efficacy, and have been proven to be effective in combating many of our modern problems. Siddhartha said, “Our life is shaped by our mind; we become what we think.” And as our chaotic world draws us farther from our inner selves, our ability to focus and control our own thought patterns has never been more challenged or essential.
