Banyen's Description: 

Resilience is the ability to face and handle life’s challenges, whether everyday disappointments or extraordinary disasters. While resilience is innate in the brain, over time we learn unhelpful patterns, which then become fixed in our neural circuitry. But science is now revealing that what previously seemed hardwired can be rewired, and Bouncing Back shows us how. Clear exercises and examples allow readers to rebuild their clarity, connection, competence, calm, and courage.

I encourage you to try all the experiential exercises as you proceed through the book, as practical experiments in rewiring your brain. Because every brain is conditioned differently, everyone’s experience using these exercises will be different.

Bouncing Back guides us in rebuilding our core well-being and disaster-proofing our brains.

Linda Graham has seen up close what builds resilience and what tears it down. In language that is heartfelt, often lyrical, and always practical, and with a comprehensive approach to mind, body, heart, and spirit, she has distilled a lifetime of clinical practice and deep reflection into an authoritative and practical guide. Her work is creative in its groundbreaking integration of ancient contemplative wisdom, relational psychology, and modern neuroscience—and supremely useful in its compassionate focus on what will help you here and now. —Rick Hanson, from the foreword

“Explores the psychological, relational, and neurological dynamics of resilience and offers a rich array of meditations and attentional practices that can help us navigate everything from daily stressors to deep trauma. Written with great lucidity and compassion, this book helps us cultivate a heart that is ready for anything.” —Tara Brach, author of True Refuge
