"This is great stuff. The latest, best mindful brain science in a wildly practical form, with wise and clear practices that can radically transform your relationships."
-- Jack Kornfield, PhD, author "The Wise Heart: A Guide to the Universal Teachings of Buddhist Psychology"
"Psych Central's Recommendation: Worth Your Time! "Rewire Your Brain for Love" is one of those great hybrids between self-help and education. If you're looking for a method to tackle relationship problems (or even just 'life' problems), you'd be hard-pressed to find a better primer."
-- Dan Berkowitz, PsychCentral Book Reviews
"Change your brain's pathways and you change the path of your relationships: that's what neuropsychologist and psychotherapist Marsha Luca, PhD offers in "Rewire Your Brain for Love". She uses her sense of humor and compassion as much as her knowledge of neuroscience and mindfulness to get you growing toward new, more vibrant relationships. Incredibly useful and highly engaging!"
--Marci Shimoff, "New York Time"s bestselling author of "Happy For No Reason" and "Love For No Reason"
"With entertaining humor and enlightening clarity, Dr. Lucas blends cutting-edge discoveries in neurobiology and psychology with time-honored practices from ancient wisdom traditions to help us navigate the challenges of intimate relationships. Full of real-life examples and practical tools, this book is a delightful must-read for anyone wanting to get along better with other people."
-- Ronald D. Siegel, PsyD, Assistant Clinical Professor of Psychology, Harvard Medical School; author of "The Mindfulness Solution"""Rewire Your Brain for Love" is delightfully engaging and easy to read. Everyone will find something life-enhancing inside these pages."
-- Christiane Northrup, MD, author of the New York Times bestsellers "Women's Bodies, Women's Wisdom" and "The Wisdom of Menopause
""Honest, warmhearted, and funny. Marsha Lucas explains neuroscience in plain English, so all of us can understand. She brings great clarity to the sometimes murky waters of romantic relationships and gives us a wonderful introduction to mindfulness meditation and its benefits."
-- Sharon Salzberg, author of "Real Happiness
""Marsha Lucas takes the mystery out of two mysterious subjects--the inner workings of our brains and the successful pursuit of true love. She's a wise and funny cupid, bringing together our hearts and minds as she explains amygdalas and anxiety, frontal lobes and commitment-phobes. She's an excellent advocate for meditation, presenting its benefits in a unique, compelling way."
-- Priscilla Warner, "New York Times" bestselling author of "Learning to Breathe
""Each of us has the potential to live with an open, loving heart. This book shows us how meditation awakens our capacity for increased presence, intimacy, and understanding in our relationships. With clarity and humor, Marsha Lucas gives us both the fascinating science behind this transformation, and the practices that make it possible."
-- Tara Brach, PhD, bestselling author of "Radical Accepta
"With "Rewire Your Brain for Love," Marsha Lucas has pulled off an achievement that is as valuable as it is rare: she synthesizes complex neurophysiological information about the brain's role in relationships, in clear, reader-friendly ways; and combines this with effective tools and suggestions for beefing up the capacity for attachment. And there's a bonus: she's a really fine, witty, accessible writer. Anyone who struggles with garden-variety anxiety about love, all the way up to fullblown phobia, should read this book, more than once. And it should be dog-eared and well worn on every therapist's reference shelf."
-- Belleruth Naparstek, LISW, author of "Invisible Heroes" and creator of the Health Journeys guided imagery series"Dr. Lucas shows readers how to use the power of neuroplasticity--the capacity of the mind to change the brain--to build up the 'circuits' of resilience, empathy, and assertiveness for relationships. Her voice is warm, funny, down-to-earth, practical, and so very helpful. This book is like having a best friend who is both savvy about the brain and a world-class therapist."
-- Rick Hanson, PhD, author of "Buddha's Brain""Marsha Lucas's is a smart and reader-friendly guide for an exciting journey through our hearts and brains. Dr. Lucas skillfully interweaves her therapeutic and neuroscientific knowledge with personal wisdom into a rich, meaningful, and accessible tapestry that expands our self-awareness in the service of sustaining and deepening our relationships."
-- Louis Cozolino, PhD, Professor of Psychology, Pepperdine University; author of "The Neuroscience of Human Relationships
""Dr. Lucas provides an accessible and practical guide to help us bring alive the exciting intersection of mindfulness and neuroscience for healthier relationships and a better life."
-- Elisha Goldstein, PhD, author of "The Now Effec"t and co-author of "A Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction Workbook
""We live in a world of failed relationship
"This excellent book takes the reader on an exciting journey of self discovery and healing through the emerging field of neurobiology and mindfulness meditation. Dr. Lucas presents scientific concepts in an easily understood manner and goes on to assist the reader to learn meditation techniques that have demonstrated proven healing benefits for emotional, psychological, and physical problems as well as for those individuals who strive for optimal wellness. This book is a must-read for everyone."
-- Leonard A. Wisneski, MD, FACP, Professor at George Washington University, Georgetown University, University of Colorado; author of "The Scientific Basis of Integrative Medicine
""Ever wondered why you get stuck in the same old relationship patterns? With no-nonsense wit and warmth, Marsha Lucas shows you what's happening at brain level when habits form, persist, and most importantly, shift. Crucially, she also shows you how to apply this knowledge to transform your intimate connections--all with the simple practice of mindfulness. This book will bring joy not just to many readers, but to those who share their lives."
-- Ed Halliwell, co-author of "The Mindful Manifesto" -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine vergriffene oder nicht verfügbare Ausgabe dieses Titels.
About the Author
Marsha Lucas, PhD, is a licenced psychologist and neuropsychologist, and has been practicing psychotherapy and studying the brain-behavior relationship for 20 years. Prior to entering private practice, she was a neuropsychologist on the faculty at the Emory University School of Medicine. She fell in love with interpersonal neurobiology in a conference room full of 750 other people - finding herself getting some odd looks when she had tears of joy at the mention of the anterior cingulate and the insula in the same sentence as 'greater empathy'. She appreciates the integration of mindfulness, neuroscience and relationships as a perfect confluence of many of the previously unintegrated aspects of her life. rewireyourbrainforlove.com

A more scientific, although without trying to make us all Phd students, approach to mindfulness in life. Written by a Phd title holder, therefore tested by a scientist herself techniques to gain a new brain for a healthier life!
This resource is applicable for exploring, developing, maintaining all types of relationships, including the most important self love.
Helpful practice sessions which will assist in developing our meditation practice.
It is important to read and carefully digest the information in the first section and not read in one session. The book is about rewiring existing circuitry, rather like the electrician conducting a safety check and taking action where appropriate rather than gutting the property! Marsha provides a guide in using what is in-situ, thereby not perpetuating any sense of failure the reader might already have.
The electrician, or expert, who carries out the rewiring is the reader through the practice of meditation, or more specifically, mindfulness. Marsha discusses briefly the scientific evidence surrounding the practice of mindfulness and whilst not directly referencing the sources, I have such reports in academic journals and can attest to the efficacy suggested. Like anything though, it needs regular practice to work and Marsha explains this through reference to a patient previously introduced. The case studies are utilised effectively and are easy to associate with in the UK.
This is not a book for those who want or need immediate answers, instead you need to engage and process in order to accept yourself and your ability to re-wire you own brain.
I have given it 4 stars because no book is perfect, though this is worth 4.5!
