Break Through: Master Your Default Mode and Thrive by Hosein Kouros-Mehr

“Break Through is a fascinating, science-backed exploration of the default mode network (DMN), considered to be the actual location of ‘self’ in the brain. Understanding and healing our DMN is a promising way to tackle society’s mental health epidemic.” – Rick Doblin, PhD, Founder of MAPS

What’s stopping you from being truly happy and at peace? Could it be your wandering mind that constantly revisits painful thoughts and bad habits?

Scientists now have a name for the wandering mind—the default mode network (DMN), a barrier that can prevent you from enjoying life. Your DMN takes you away from the present moment and encourages you to ruminate on the past and future. This can lead to painful conditions—mental knots—like stress, anxiety, emotional pain, addiction, and depression.

Fortunately, you can break through this wall to the blissful peace in your core. Backed by scientific data, Break Through connects the medical and spiritual realms on a journey of inner healing. With a holistic approach, you can master your default mode and rise to your best self.

Unlock health, happiness, and inner peace, and open the door to new possibilities that you once deemed impossible.
