About the Episode
In recent years, the concept of neural plasticity, the revelation that the brain can rewire itself, has become more commonly accepted. However, few people are aware of how quickly this is occurring, how broad brain alterations can be, and how much influence each of us has over the process at this point. But, as science is now revealing, this brain plasticity does not take place over months or years, as previously thought. Instead, it is happening swiftly, and it has the potential to rewire entire neural networks in the brain over time.
In today’s episode of the pursuit of learning, we have a fascinating and mind-blowing conversation with someone who delves deep into cutting-edge science and uncovers startling evidence of rapid and drastic brain transformation in the process. As explained in his book: Bliss brain, we may induce significant changes in our brains in as little as eight weeks of practice, 12 minutes a day, employing the appropriate approaches. Furthermore, he believes that these changes make us calmer, happier, and more resilient. Also, he teaches people how to apply the latest breakthroughs in energy psychology to their health and athletic performance through EFT Universe, one of the largest alternative medicine websites on the internet. Dr. Dawson Church, award-winning author and thought leader, joins today’s episode to share his wisdom and incredible experiences to guide us to a bliss brain.
Dawson begins the talk by sharing his life experience, which has taken him from being an unhappy person to being a happy person. He states how his experience of facing a wildfire changes his life. As he mentions, when he returned to the office, the filing cabinets, desks, computers had been destroyed to the point that he couldn’t even tell where they were. There had been molten bundles of metal on the ground and among the ash. The only item that survived had been a statue of the Buddha as everything around him goes up in flames; Buddha merely sits there serenely in the ashes, watching everything. It had stuck Dawson as a metaphor for how compassion, love, joy, and thankfulness are the only things that will go on in perpetuity. Sharing that experience, Dawson highlights that nobody can extinguish gratitude.
Furthermore, he discusses the seven primary stages that help to elevate emotional states during a conversation with someone. He also shows how science can regularly transport you to a bliss brain, which is fascinating. Furthermore, he delves into various meditation perspectives and explains the neuroscience underpinning these discoveries in detail. Most importantly, he engages in a brief physical activity during the conversation, which appears to be highly effective and fruitful. Also, he demonstrates how “the seven neurochemicals of ecstasy” are released in our brains during intense meditation. Finally, as the conversation comes to a close, Dawson encourages the audience to expose themselves to the unconditional love of the universe and to express gratitude.
