The quest for enlightenment has occupied mankind for millennia. And from the depictions we've seen - monks sitting on meditation cushions, nuns kneeling in prayer, shamans communing with the universe - it seems that this elusive state is reserved for a chosen few. But now, neuroscientist David Perlmutter and medical anthropologist and shaman Alberto Villoldo have come together to explore the commonalities between their specialties with the aim of making enlightenment possible for anyone. Joining the long-separated worlds of science and spirit, Perlmutter explores the exciting phenomena of neurogenesis and mitochondrial health, while Villoldo brings his vast knowledge of shamanic and spiritual practices to the table. Together they draw from the most powerful tools in each discipline to create the Power Up Your Brain programme, a ground-breaking, five-week plan that helps prime the brain for enlightenment. With nutritional advice, dietary supplements, physical exercise, shamanic practices, meditation and visualisations, Perlmutter and Villoldo guide readers, step by step, through a program to help them clear their minds from previous trauma and open themselves up to experience the inner peace, vast insight and extraordinary creativity that define the experience of enlightenment.

Review:

""Dr. Perlmutter and Dr. Villoldo bring together the long-separated disciplines of science and spirituality to help us gain access to the parts of the brain that define us as human beings. This book applies leading-edge science to our quest for enlightenment and gives us practical tools, including specific dietary and lifestyle recommendations, to improve our well-being.""-- Andrew Weil, M.D., author of "8 Weeks to Optimum Health "and" Healthy Aging"

""The shaman and physician for millennia were the same person until the 19th century when they were split apart in the name of science. Now through the lens of 21st-century science, Villoldo and Perlmutter bring them back together, illuminating the web that links together our physical and metaphysical energy. For anyone feeling a loss of energy of body or soul, Power Up Your Brain is your guide to restoration and rejuvenation of your deepest energies.""-- Mark Hyman, M.D., "New York Times "best-selling author of "The UltraMind Solution"

""This book is a treasure. It is a guidebook to enlightenment filled with the wisdom and experience of the authors. It relates the practical aspects of science to the spiritual and mystical realities of the nature of life. It clarifies what our potential is as human beings and directs us in the steps we need to take to achieve our potential and utilize the healing energy available to us all.""-- Bernie S. Siegel, M.D., author of "Love, Medicine & Miracles" and "365 Prescriptions for the Soul"

""This is the book we've been waiting for! With leading-edge information that's easy to understand, Alberto Villoldo and David Perlmutter have masterfully woven 21st-century science with the indigenous wisdom of the past to reveal the 'missing link' in the modern story of life--the role of our brain's health in the quality of our spiritual experience. In doing so they offer us a practical wisdom that we can use to empower our lives immediately! This book is a must for anyone seriously interested in moving beyond the con-ven-tional ideas of what enlightenment is and how to achieve it.""-- Gregg Braden, "New York Times "best-selling author of "The Divine Matrix "and "Fractal Time"

""I seldom use the word 'brilliant, ' but this book is. It expands our awareness of the untapped potential of our brain,
offers cutting-edge neuroscience, and is written by two experts with decades of hands-on clinical practice. See for yourself why Dr. Perlmutter is my personal neurologist and mentor.""-- Naomi Judd, singer, songwriter, and author of "Naomi's Guide to Aging Gratefully"

""This is one of the most important books I've ever read. Combining modern scientific knowledge and shamanic practices, it lucidly explains how to restore the health of the brain at the cellular level.""-- David R. Hamilton, Ph.D., author of "How Your Mind Can Heal Your Body"

Dr. Perlmutter and Dr. Villoldo bring together the long-separated disciplines of science and spirituality to help us gain access to the parts of the brain that define us as human beings. This book applies leading-edge science to our quest for enlightenment and gives us practical tools, including specific dietary and lifestyle recommendations, to improve our well-being.
