A Healthy Curiosity

Exploring strategies for holistic health, happiness, and personal evolution: what it takes to be well in a busy world. Blending the wisdom of Chinese Medicine, functional medicine, Ayurveda, neuroscience and psychology, you'll get practical tips you can use right away. You know that health and happiness aren’t things you can outsource. You’ve also got a full plate, you're a giver, and making the time to take care of yourself can be challenging. A Healthy Curiosity is here to support you. Host Brodie Welch, L.Ac., is an expert in Chinese Medicine and acupuncture, a holistic health coach, as well as a teacher and practitioner of qi gong, meditation, yoga, lifestyle and diet counseling who tries to walk her talk about health and mindfulness as a recovering Type-A, parent, and business owner. You'll find interviews with fellow experts in Chinese Medicine and natural health care about the conditions we treat and strategies we use clinically; simple self-care tips to help you feel calm, centered, and energized; and personal chats where we explore what gets in the way of our best intentions: perfectionism, big goals, habits and routines, chronic pain, overwork and overwhelm, boundaries, limiting beliefs — and what it takes to overcome such obstacles mindfully. While not strictly an acupuncture / Chinese Medicine podcast, it's not "not" an acupuncture podcast.

Given the frenetic pace of life we deal with today, it's useful to mine the wisdom traditions for ways to slow down and embody feelings like contentment and inner peace.

Dr. Rick Hanson is dedicated to connecting western psychology, the contemplative traditions of the world, and the latest brain science to craft accessible ways for everyone to cultivate lasting qualities of mind and heart to carry with us. In this conversation, he discusses some of his findings as well as 7 ways of being that he's identified that can help us to make durable, positive changes in our brain.

On Today’s Episode of A Healthy Curiosity:

  • How the brain and mind shape each other
  • Why he wrote his latest book as a pragmatic approach to enlightenment
  • An example of a practice Rick recommends for helping to drop self-criticism
  • The power of brief practices that are developed over time

Rick Hanson, Ph.D., is a psychologist, Senior Fellow of UC Berkeley’s Greater Good Science Center, and New York Times best-selling author with a keen interest in the brain and meditation.

His books have been published in 29 languages and include Neurodharma, Resilient, Hardwiring Happiness, Buddha’s Brain, Just One Thing, and Mother Nurture. He’s lectured at NASA, Google, Oxford, and Harvard, and taught in meditation centers worldwide. His work has been featured on the BBC, CBS, and NPR, and 150,000 subscribers receive his free Just One Thing newsletter every week. But perhaps most importantly, he’s been meditating since 1974.

His latest book, Neurodharma shares seven practices for embodying them ourselves in daily life to handle stress, heal old pain, feel at ease with others, and rest in the sense of our natural goodness.
