The Mystery And Power Of Self Directed Social Emotional Change – Dr. Rick Hanson, Ph.D. – 298

By Jayson
July 8, 2020



Psychologist and author Dr. Rick Hanson is a previous guest of the podcast and our conversation back in episode 67 about rewiring your brain in relationships really struck a chord with me. We pick right back up on our awesome discussion in episode 298 and talk about why learning is so great for the brain and how being self-aware and asking to get your needs met are key things you should do in every relationship.

We also chat about his new book and our never-ending quest to live richer, fuller lives.

I could talk to Rick for hours — it’s truly fascinating stuff. Check it out!
