Rick Hanson Excerpt: Taking In The Good & Our Negativity Bias.

BuddhasBrainMECH.inddIn this excerpt from his FBY Interview, Rick Hanson explains our evolutionary negativity bias, and how it pre-wires the brain to be “velcro for bad experiences, and teflon for good experiences.”

As an antidote to this, he recommends the practice of mindfully “taking in the good” of positive experiences and connection and why this is such a valuable skill to cultivate through contemplative practice.
