If anything were possible, what would you like to see in your life? How would you like to grow? And what's stopping you? On The Neuroscience of Change, Dr. Kelly McGonigal weaves the newest findings of science with Eastern contemplative wisdom to give listeners a revolutionary process for personal transformation. Six sessions provide breakthrough ideas supported by clinical research, guided practices, and real-world exercises for making self-awareness and compassion the basis for meaningful change, choosing "wantpower" instead of willpower, dealing with setbacks and the inner critic, and more.
