Join us as we welcome back Dr. Chris Niebauer to talk about overcoming left-brain laziness with logic, fun, and awareness. In this episode, we will uncover the difference between our left and right brain, how our left brain can impact our sense of self, and ultimately how to overcome that false perception.
Dr. Chris Niebauer earned his Ph.D. in cognitive neuropsychology at the University of Toledo, specializing in the differences between the left and right sides of the human brain. He is currently a professor at Slippery Rock University in Pennsylvania, where he teaches courses on consciousness, mindfulness, left- and right-brain differences, and artificial intelligence.
Dr. Chris Niebauer is a PhD and a tenured professor, and the Buddhist-neuroscience connection he found as a student is practically its own genre in the bookstore. But according to Niebauer, we are just beginning to understand the link between Eastern philosophy and the latest findings in psychology and neuroscience and what these assimilated ideas mean for the human experience.
He is the author of NO SELF NO PROBLEM: How Neuropsychology Is Catching Up To BUDDHISM. In his groundbreaking book, Niebauer writes that our sense of self, or what we commonly refer to as the ego, is an illusion created entirely by the left side of the brain. What makes this book unique is that Niebauer offers a series of exercises to allow the reader to experience this truth for themself, as well as additional tools and practices to use after reading the book, all of which are designed to change the way we experience the world—a way that is based on being rather than thinking.
In the Adjusted Reality podcast, well-known athletes, celebrities, actors, chiropractors, influencers in the wellness industry, and other podcasters will talk with host Dr. Sherry McAllister, president, F4CP, about their experiences with health and wellness.
