Bliss Brain

Editorial Reviews


“This book is a masterwork by a meditation adept who is also a scientist. Dawson captivates the reader with unforgettable stories and leading-edge neuroscience that open the mind, warm the heart, and elevate the spirit. His eloquent descriptions of meditative ecstasy and fact-based explanations of what brings it about provide big-picture understanding of the evolution of consciousness. This book shines with lucidity and caring. It most convincingly beckons readers to the heights of human awareness.”
Judith Pennington, president, Institute for the Awakened Mind

“This book is so superior to the dozens of popular books on meditation I’ve seen over the years that I want to shout about it from the rooftops! It will make a beautiful difference in people’s lives! I opened it with the skepticism that its ambitious title invites, and I completed it surprised by how many fascinating insights I’d come to about the topic of ‘bliss brain.’ At a minimum, readers who sense the potential benefits of meditation but feel they don’t have a sustainable bridge into its practice will have lost that excuse. Dawson Church has brilliantly synthesized the vast literature on the neural, behavioral, lifestyle, and subjective benefits of meditation. He then systematically applies the principles derived from this analysis and from the fruits of his 50-year journey as a practicing and sometimes struggling meditator in formulating a disarmingly simple program. But unlike most self-help programs, this one has been tested scientifically, and it reliably brings participants into states of consciousness and neurochemistry that previously required years of long, diligent practice.
Bliss Brain is a potent and urgently needed antidote to a culture in turmoil.”
David Feinstein, PhD, co-author of The Energies of Love

“Science and love embrace in this incredible book. It’s more than a clear and inspiring description of how radically our brains change in response to spiritual experiences; it shows us how to master the evolutionary quirks that sidetrack us in our quest for enlightenment. From one of today’s most brilliant scientists and accomplished authors, Bliss Brain is a gift to us all.”
Dianne Morrison, president, Effective Action Consulting

“This brilliant book is a road map for turning tragedy into bliss. In my many years of knowing Dawson Church, I’ve found him to be a beacon of positivity and joy, a living example of the values he teaches. His research into how meditation activates the happiness centers of the brain puts Bliss Brain within the reach of everyone. Dawson shows how you can grow resilience even in the face of great personal loss, using adversity to remodel your brain for bliss. This book will rock your world, and show you that happiness is truly achievable, no matter how far away it seems today.”
Lisa Garr, host of The Aware Show

“Science has known for decades that the brain is changed by consciousness. Until now, we’ve never before had a truly practical guide showing how to put this knowledge to work. This comprehensive and accessible book integrates research from a dozen scientific fields and translates it for our everyday lives. It clearly shows us how to apply neural plasticity while giving us an evidence-based path to creating a happy, peaceful and resourceful brain. It’s a ‘must read.’”
Marilyn Schlitz, PhD, Dean of Transpersonal Psychology,Sofia University

Bliss Brain is a masterpiece of science, inspiration and possibility; opening doors to each one of us about what’s possible in our lives and unraveling the true meaning of human potential. I’ll be reading this again and again and sharing it with those I love!”
Nick Ortner, author of The Tapping Solution

“As The Secret meets the scientist in Dawson’s work, the boundaries of what you’ve believed possible will be stretched far beyond your existing picture of reality.”
Jack Canfield, co-author of #1 New York Times best-selling Chicken Soup® series and featured teacher in The Secret

“The pace of change and the pressure to perform often leads professionals to the edge of burnout. The research in
Bliss Brain shows that meditation provides an island of inner peace in a stressful world. It leads to massive increases in productivity, creativity, happiness, and problem solving ability. The techniques Dawson offers us provide us with the leverage to address the challenges confronting organizations and society. These are the secrets that make companies and teams thrive, both personally and professionally.”
Dr. Ivan Misner, founder of BNI and New York Times best-selling author

“Accumulating evidence suggests that meditation training yields improved emotional regulation and enduring changes in brain function, even outside meditation sessions, both in clinical and non-clinical populations. Dawson Church succinctly reviews all the neural evidence to date in this comprehensive yet relatable book, and shows how all of us can achieve states of bliss through meditation. Beautifully interwoven is his own story of loss and heartache, and recovery and resilience. This is a MUST read for everyone from all walks of life.”
Associate Professor Peta Stapleton, PhD, author of The Science Behind Tapping

“Four billion years of evolution have conditioned us to make safety & survival our brain’s default Operating System. But now we’re in the midst of an epoch change in which Enlightenment is emerging as the new Operating System. We’re in the early stages of that transition and
Bliss Brain is the catalyst we need to speed up the process. In this book you’ll find the precise instructions that science provides for reformatting your brain for lifetime happiness. Buy this book. You’ll be oh-so-very-glad you did.”
Martin Rutte, founder, Project Heaven on Earth
