On the way to finding and creating vibrant, successful relationships, too many of us end up tangled
in the same old patterns, tripped up by relationship habits that get in our way whether we "know better" or not.
In Rewire Your Brain for Love, neuropsychologist and psychotherapist Marsha Lucas, PhD, helps you untangle those relationship snarls,
bringing together the latest neuroscience with a practice consistently heralded by top academic institutions for its effectivness
in changing the brain: the practice of mindfulness meditation.
Dr. Lucas's clear, unintimidating, often laugh-out-loud
style invites you to explore how the brain functions in relationships, helping you understand how your current relationship
wiring developed and showing you how you can rewire your relationship brain through mindfulness meditation.
down-to-earth therapist and self-described neuroscience geek, Dr. Lucas has written a chapter-by-chapter guide with compassion,
wisdom, and humor. In Rewire Your Brain for Love, she takes you on a journey through seven high-voltage relationship benefits—everything from
keeping your fear from running the show to cultivating healthy, balanced empathy—and offers specific mindfulness practices
to help bring those benefits into your life.
With a few minutes of practice a day, you can change the way you
interact with everyone around you... especially those closest to you. You can transform your brain from an enemy to an ally
in all matters of the heart, creating more loving communication, building emotional resilience, and reducing overreactivity—not
to mention enjoying better sex.
You don't have to become a monk, or a vegetarian, or spend hours contemplating
your navel—you just need to update the relationship wiring of your brain. The simple practice of mindfulness can help
get you there, with Dr. Lucas showing you how.
