Renowned researcher Dawson Church examines stunning scientific evidence that shows how, in just eight weeks of practice, 12 minutes a day, we can produce measurable changes in our brains that make us calmer, happier and more resilient. The startling conclusions of Dawson's research on neuroplasticity show that stress circuits actually shrivel over time while our 'Enlightenment Circuit' - associated with happiness, productivity, resilience - expands. In this book, he explores how deep meditation releases 'the 7 neurochemicals of ecstasy' in our brains; some of these include the 'bliss molecule' anandamide, which boosts serotonin and dopamine, creating a self-induced high. Our brain literally has the power to make us feel happier, calmer, more creative and compassionate. While writing Bliss Brain, Dawson went through a series of disasters, including escaping a California wildfire that consumed his home and triggered a painful medical condition as well as financial disaster for him. Through it all, he steadily practised the techniques of Bliss Brain while teaching them to thousands of people. This book blends his story of resilience with neuroscience, producing a fascinating picture of just how happy we can make our brains, no matter the odds.

A leading public intellectual, Michael Bliss has written prolifically for academic and popular audiences and taught at the University of Toronto from 1968 to 2006. Among his publications are a comprehensive history of the discovery of insulin, and major biographies of Frederick Banting, William Osler, and Harvey Cushing. The essays in this volume, each written by former doctoral students of Bliss, with a foreword by John Fraser and Elizabeth McCallum, do honour to his influence, and, at the same time, reflect upon the writing of history in Canada at the end of the twentieth century. The opening essays discuss Bliss's career, his impact on the study of history, and his academic record. Bliss himself contributes an autobiographical essay that strengthens our understanding of the business of scholarship, teaching, and writing. In the second section, the contributors interrogate public mythmaking in the relationship between politics and business in eighteenth-, nineteenth-, and twentieth-century Canada. Further sections investigate the relationship between fatherhood, religion, and historiography, as well as topics in health and public policy. A final section on 'Medical Science and Practice' deals with subjects ranging from early endocrinology, lobotomy, the mechanical heart, and medical biography as a genre. Going beyond a collection of dedicatory essays, this volume explores the wider subject of writing social and medical history in Canada in the late twentieth century.

One of Canada’s best-known and most-honoured biographers turns to the raw material of his own life in Writing History. A university professor, prolific scholar, public intellectual, and frank critic of the world he has known, Michael Bliss draws on extensive personal diaries to describe a life that has taken him from small-town Ontario in the 1950s to international recognition for his books in Canadian and medical history. His memoir ranges remarkably widely: it encompasses social history, family tragedy, a critical insider’s view of university life, Canadian national politics, and, above all, a rare glimpse into the craftsmanship that goes into the research and writing of history in our time. Whether writing about pigs and millionaires, the discovery of insulin, sleazy Canadian politicians, or the founders of modern medicine and brain surgery, Michael Bliss is noted for the clarity of his prose, the honesty of his opinions, and the breadth of his literary interests.
