The Enchanted Loom

Self-Directed Neuroplasticity, or How To Be Happy In Hard Times

Jeannette Sullivan, Ph.D.

November 14, 2020 – Saturday

How do we maintain our well-being in what has been described as a “dumpster fire” of a year? Most people in a recent poll characterized their mental states as uncontrollable anxiety. This spills over into an unwelcome surge in pessimism and fears about personal futures as well as the future of our country, and the planet as a whole. As long ago as the Gilded Age, the human brain has been known to weigh in on and even control many physical and emotional responses to external stimuli. It has been dubbed The Enchanted Loom, spinning a great tapestry made up of our experience of this human life.

Neuroscientists have been mapping human responses to external circumstances since the advent of fMRI and PET scans. As a result, we now have scientific evidence to corroborate what mystics, philosophers, and spiritual activists have long known: we can decide to control our internal states. Some neuroscientiests clam this is the greatest insight of the century: we do not have to be victims of circumstances no matter how disturbing. Understanding the biology of our thoughts and feelings helps us respond to stimuli in a manner befitting a better version of ourselves. Find out how you can use knowledge about neuroplasticity to rewire your brain in the direction of resilience and even joy.
