“Research is increasingly showing that practices of mindfulness and empathy are among the most powerful agents of brain change known to science.
*
*
Both can catalyze brain change and guide it in a positive direction.
*
*
Both strengthen the functioning of the prefrontal cortex to rewire old patterns.
*
*
Both can safely and efficiently process carefully chosen new experiences to maximize that rewiring in the brain and sustain the desired changes over time.
