How can we create the right kind of disruption to “rewire” our brains and override stagnating habits that have outlived their adaptive value to us? Here are a few powerful points:

 • Brain is malleable throughout life
• Meditation builds the pathways between the  left pre-frontal cortex and the amygdale
• Doing the harder thing overrides the effects of trauma on the amygdale
 We are wired to connect on a social basis with other persons
 This connection occurs through mirror neurons
• Mirror neurons activate  in us what the other person is doing, feeling or intending
• There is an emotional subtext to every human interaction
• All of this operates outside of consciousness
