The human brain serves as the foundation for all of our behaviors, emotions and choices. Billions of brain cells form trillions of nerve connections that “wire” us for millions of unconscious and a far smaller number of conscious thoughts each day— thoughts that trap us in our past experiences, such as traumatic childhoods, broken relationships and difficult life transitions. This wiring and resulting feelings and behaviors have great power to negatively impact our lives, causing destructive belief systems and cycles of bad choices and experiences.
The ReWired Brain offers a clear framework for understanding the two competing systems of thinking arising from our brains and how one gives rise to certain fears and instincts that drive unhealthy emotional dysfunctions and related behavioral patterns in the most important areas of life, such as personal growth, relationships and sexuality. Importantly, the book also details how several deliberative processes such as determining who we are and altering our conscious thoughts have incredible power through brain plasticity to alter our wiring and improve our lives.


  • Using cutting-edge scientific research, learn about the two systems of thinking that play a role in every decision we make
  • Discover steps to rewire your brain and get unstuck in the most important areas of life (relationships, sex, parenting, spirituality, disappointment, and tragedy)
  • Understand the lies that keep us from experiencing true freedom
  • Recognize how we are constantly being manipulated to make choices and live in fear by the use of unsubstantiated threats (i.e. fear-based media, politics, legalistic religion)
  • Uncover emotional dependencies and find healing through neuroscience and faith
  • Reframe impactful, negative experiences and begin to live fearlessly
