As you read this, you are breathing and taking no notice of this. After listening to this podcast, we think you may never completely ignore breathing again. In fact, like us, you might become fascinated with the potential breathing holds for changing how we think about ourselves and the world around us. Join us as we explore with Dr. Don Noble how to harness the mysteries of breath to improve our mental and physical health.
Life is often wonderful, but it is also difficult. Given how much we want happiness, why can’t we be happy more often in our lives? What stands between us and mental peace? Join us for compelling and challenging answers to these questions courtesy of Dr. John Dunne, our guest on this podcast. Dr. Dunne is a Distinguished Chair of Contemplative Humanities in the Center for Healthy Minds and the Department of Asian Languages and Cultures at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. Dr. Dunne’s work at the intersection of meditation and cognitive neuroscience has made him a world leader in broadening our understanding of commonalities between modern scientific and Buddhist perspectives on the human condition.
