In this episode, we interview Dr. James Doty, neurosurgeon and New York Times best-selling author of Into the Magic Shop: A Neurosurgeon’s Quest to Discover the Mysteries of the Brain and the Secrets of the Heart. Listen as Dr. Doty explains the four “tricks” that he learned by spending a summer with the magic shop owner’s mother.
Into the Magic Shop is a memoir of the impact this woman had on his life by teaching him mindfulness, meditation, affirmations, visualization and ultimately, how to tame your mind and open your heart.
