Bliss Brain: The Neuroscience of Remodeling Your Brain for Resilience, Creativity, and Joy


Dr. Dawson Church is the author of “Bliss Brain: The Neuroscience of Remodeling Your Brain for Resilience, Creativity, and Joy”. Dawson decided to shift from his successful publishing career because of the great impact that meditation had on his ability to be happy despite some of the catastrophic events he has lived through. Dawson’s many scientific clinical trials have also helped him find many astonishing results in the techniques he uses. Dawson’s work comes from a place of first healing trauma, and then beyond that, achieving elevated states of consciousness, which, of course, is why he’s named his book Bliss Brain. He’s founded the National Institute for Integrative Health Care to promote groundbreaking new treatments. And he’s also founded something called the Veterans Stress Project, which has offered free treatment to over twenty thousand veterans with PTSD over the last 10 years.

Show Notes

In this interview for the School for Good Living Podcast, Dawson joins Brilliant Miller to talk about what’s going on inside our brains and our bodies when we meditate, helping to demystify, make it comprehensible and actionable, and explain some of the benefits of meditation, taking it out of the realm of mysticism and making it very relatable, understandable, and doable. In this interview, Dawson explains and shares many of the ways that he has been able to enhance his own meditation and ultimately how it has become one of his greatest keys to good living.

“By healing yourself, you heal the world.”
