We will be reading and discussing the book, Hardwiring Happiness: The New Brain Science of Contentment, Calm and Confidence by Rick Hanson, PhD. Here is a review from Amazon, "In this remarkable book, one of the world's leading authorities on mind training shows how to cultivate the helpful and good within us. In a beautifully written and accessible way, Rick Hanson offers us an inspiring gift of wise insights and compassionate and uplifting practices that will be of enormous benefit to all who read this book. A book of hope and joyfulness."--Paul Gilbert, Ph.D., O.B.E., Professor, University of Derby, author of The Compassionate Mind. We read and discuss one chapter/week using a discussion guide. Reading and participation are required.
