Awakening the Brain
The Neuropsychology of GraceBook - 2012
"In Awakening the Brain, neuropsychologist and former Catholic nun Dr. Charlotte Tomaino explores the relationship between the brain and spirituality. With her unique experience of being both a doctor and a nun, Dr. Tomaino has observed the power that spirit and faith have on the neurological function and structure of the brain. Operating from a spiritual and compassionate core, Tomaino mixes spirituality and science in language that is easy for the layman to understand and integrate, giving people a whole new perspective on their lives. For many people, neuroplasticity is a technical concept that is difficult to understand. Yet Dr. Tomaino offers a simple roadmap that helps readers use the power of neuroscience and conscious thought to alter the neural connections within their brain, changing the way they operate in the world. Awakening the Brain delves into: ʺHow our beliefs affect the way our brains process and interpret sensory information ʺHo our beliefs affect the way our brain processes and interprets sensory information ʺHow the physical functioning of our brains works to shape our beliefs and experiences ʺHow choosing our beliefs and setting intention gives us the power to change the physical functioning of our brain ʺHow changing our physical brain changes the way our consciousness interprets our experience ʺHow ancient spiritual practices have been shown to affect the brain ʺHow readers can train the neural networks in their brains to create a shift in their own consciousness ʺHow enlightenment is literally a physical state of mind ʺHow readers can design and build their own divine mind and achieve a life of spiritual connection"--Provided by publisher.
