In this TEDxTalk, Professor Willoughby Britton tells us that happiness is not about getting what you want. She discusses our mental qualities as habits we practice and she sheds light on an important link between neuroscience and contemplative studies.

Britton received a B.A. in Neuroscience from Colgate University in 1996 and a Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology from the University of Arizona in 2007. Broadly speaking, she is interested in the role of variations in conscious states in the intersection between affective neuroscience, clinical science and religion.

"A wandering mind is
an unhappy mind"

By the power of this merit sharing, 
may we avoid the company of 
those ignorant of the Dhamma and 
who mislead us.

May we be blessed with 
wise friends and skillful teachers.

May we never stray away from
 the Path wherever we are.

May we always have the chance 
to study and practise the Dhamma.
