Ancient wisdom meets modern science
The new brain science is an exciting window into the nature of consciousness, emotional balance, physical health, and the interconnection of subtle energies-systems of information – we call the mind. The new field of interpersonal neurobiology describes how the mind is both embodied in our brain and nervous system as well as embedded in our relationships. The quality of those relationships- whether they evoke love, compassion, and mindfulness or fear, anger, and constriction – affect the release of informational molecules. These “mind molecules” in turn create epigenetic changes that affect both physical and mental health.
