An Interview With Neuroscience & Consciousness Author Chris Niebauer — No self, No Problem Business Meets Spirituality

    • Entrepreneurship

This week, I am joined by Ph.D. Chris Niebauer, author of the groundbreaking new book, No Self, No Problem: How Neuropsychology is Catching Up to Buddhism. Chris shares with me the story of how he became interested in neuroscience, psychology, and Eastern philosophy after being devastated by the loss of his father. During his studies and research in grad school, he found parallels between the latest discoveries about the brain and the philosophies of Buddhism, specifically the practices that allow us to develop an awareness and manage basic mental challenges like fear and anxiety to alleviate suffering. He wrote his book to share his findings with the world and help others who are struggling with anxiety. Chris and I talk about the interplay between consciousness and neural science, embracing emotions, and why Chris feels it’s best to have one foot in the doing world but not attach yourself to the outcomes in it. https://adamhergenrother.com/084-an-interview-with-neuroscience-consciousness-author-chris-niebauer-no-self-no-problem/ (See full show notes.)
