Please join us and our guest, Joseph Selbie, for a show on Break Through the Limits of the Brain: Neuroscience, Inspiration, and Practices to Transform Your Life. This book connects the dots between the discoveries of neuroscience and the meditation-born spiritual experience, as well as offering proven and practical ways to tap into the life-changing, life-enhancing treasure house of our superconscious potential.
The book debunks scientific materialism’s brain-based explanation for consciousness and intelligence—including the brain-as-supercomputer and artificial intelligence models—and explains instead the view of many prominent and open-minded scientists that an all-pervading intelligent consciousness is the foundation of reality—an age-old view shared by saints, sages, mystics, and near-death experiencers. Joseph explores the current neuroscientific understanding of the brain’s dismaying degree of life-controlling influence on our thoughts, emotions, and behavior, and balances that understanding with neuroscience’s discoveries of neuroplasticity and our innate ability to rewire the brain for any new purpose—from the material to the mystical.
Joseph Selbie makes the complex and obscure, simple and clear. A founding member of the meditation-based community Ananda and dedicated meditator for over forty years, he has taught yoga and meditation throughout the United States and Europe. He lives with his wife at Ananda Village near Nevada City, California.
