A conversation & book signing with Due Quach, author of:
Calm Clarity: How to Use Science to Rewire Your Brain
for Greater Wisdom, Fulfillment and Joy
DATE: Thursday, January 17
TIME: 7PM – 8:30PM
We often don’t realize how much control we have over our thoughts, feelings, and actions. On some days, the most minor irritation can upset us, but on others, we are in our best form and can rise to challenges with grace. These fluctuations depend on
the neural networks firing in our brains, and we have the power to consciously break hardwired thought patterns. Due Quach developed an intimate understanding of the brain during her personal journey of healing from post-traumatic stress disorder.
According to Quach, people function in three primary emotional states: Brain 1.0, Brain 2.0, and Brain 3.0. In Brain 1.0, people act out of fear and self-preservation. Brain 2.0 involves instant gratification and chasing short-term rewards at the expense of long-term well-being. Brain 3.0 is a state of mind that Quach calls “Calm Clarity,” in which people’s actions are aligned with their core values. As Quach confronted PTSD and successfully weaned herself off medication, she learned how to activate, exercise, and strengthen Brain 3.0 like a muscle. In Calm Clarity, she draws on the latest scientific research and ancient spiritual traditions to show us how we too can take ownership of our thoughts, feelings, and actions in order to be our best selves.
This will be an interactive presentation in which the author will help attendees connect with their “Inner Sage,” (the oppositie of the inner critic!). As part of the event, Due Quach will guide the audience through several short exercises from the book, including a meditation or a reflection exercise.
- “Calm Clarity is not just a powerful story of transformation, it is an enthralling tour of the latest research on brain science, complete with actionable takeaways to radically transform the way you think, feel, and live. “
