455: Pet the Lizard Brain to Calm Anxiety

In this episode, Gina discusses how different parts of the brain function differently according to their developmental age (how long ago and for what purpose various parts of the brain developed and thus continue to function) and how we can use this knowledge to reduce our anxiety.  The most ancient part of our brain, the "lizard brain", is the part of our brain associated with our basic survival functions.  Listen in as Gina describes how being aware of how this lizard brain functions and how to address it with the other parts of our brain and being can improve our struggle with anxiety.

What is anxiety?


A calm mind releases the most precious capacity a human being can have: the capacity to turn anger into compassion, fear into fearlessness, and hatred into love. –Eknath Easwaran
