For as long as I can remember, I have been fascinated by the workings of the human brain, and the big questions like does the brain create consciousness and does our sense of self originate in the brain? That’s why I was excited to connect with this episode’s guest, neuropsychologist and author of No Self, No Problem: How Neuropsychology Is Catching Up To Buddhism, Chris Niebauer. Chris’ work seamlessly blends spiritually and neuropsychology, showing us how advances in brain sciences are pointing us back toward age-old spiritual teachings. Trust me, you will not want to miss this episode!
**Chris shares his journey of awakening after a tragic loss, and how this experience transformed his work as a neuropsychologist.
**Chris shares how recent discoveries in neuroscience support ancient wisdom of Buddhist teachings.
** Chris explains why neuroscientists still cannot find the seat of the self in the human brain.
** We discuss the differences in how the right and left brain process information and why this matters to our sense of self and spirituality
** We discuss the process of spiritual evolution and awakening, and how to work with rather than fighting against the ego.
**Chris highlights the importance of using your mind, rather than letting the mind use you.
