With a fast rate of change and the pace at which we as individuals are evolving and society as a whole, turning the lens inward and cultivating inner strength is a venture worth pursuing if you want to be equipped to handle life's challenges and develop true self-reliance.
My guest today, Rick Hanson, was on the show back on episode 059 to talk about his book Buddha's Brain: The Practical Neuroscience of Happiness, Love & Wisdom, and the work he does around understanding the natural tendencies of the brain and how to leverage that knowledge combined with practical neuroscience to create change.
Today Rick is back on the show to dive into his book Resilient: How to Grow an Unshakable Core of Calm, Strength, and Happiness. This book dives into the principles Rick teaches in his online course, Foundations of Well-Being, which has been practiced by around 15,000 students. It's a deep dive to building 12 inner strengths, which became the basis of this book.
Resilient hits the shelves tomorrow March 27th and is already #1 in New Releases on Amazon.
In this interview we will unpack some of the key distinction in Resilient and what it means to cultivate inner strengths while getting your needs met.

Penney Peirce was on the show at episode 120 to talk about her book Transparency and this particular stage in the Transformation process. Today we are going to come back around to understand another one of the stages of transformation through Penney's book Frequency: The Power of Personal Vibration.
Penney unpacks and builds some powerful distinctions in here to help us understand what frequency is, different ways to regulate our personal vibration (especially in social situations where we may "assume" the frequency of others), and the importance of finding our home frequency and center.
Through mindfulness practices, meditation, and directing our attention, just to name a few, we can start to bring our awareness to more subtle levels of energy and tap into things like intuition, creativity, and even more peaceful states.
The desire for people seeking more meaning in their lives, have more fulfilling careers, and searching for a deeper purpose are just a few of the ways this desire to integrate the physical and the spiritual are starting to not only emerge, but be the norm.
