Writings from Dr. Rick Hanson

Le Bain Epanouissant pour le Cerveau
(A Nurturing Bath for the Brain)

Rick Hanson’s “Pet the Lizard, Feed the Mouse and Hug the Monkey” practices from the Just One Thing newsletter have been put together by Marina Berney into an easy daily routine called the BEC.

In this little French booklet, Marina first summarises some of the main ideas and concepts of Buddha’s Brain, along with selected posts of Just One Thing. We are then introduced to the practice, whereby the rewiring of the brain is enhanced by Brain Gym® movements and the holding of Acupressure points.

Embodying the practice in this way is extremely effective in helping the “Enrich” and “Absorb” steps of Rick Hanson’s HEAL process.
