Master Your Default Mode and Thrive

Heal Your Mind and Find Your Higher Self

Break Through Master Your Default Mode by Hosein Kouros-Mehr 3D cover

What’s stopping you from being truly happy and at peace? Could it be your wandering mind that constantly revisits painful thoughts and bad habits? 

Scientists now have a name for the wandering mindthe default mode network (DMN), a barrier that can prevent you from enjoying life. Your DMN takes you away from the present moment and encourages you to ruminate on the past and future. This can lead to painful conditions—mental knots—like stress, anxiety, emotional pain, addiction, and depression.

Fortunately, you can break through this wall to the blissful peace in your core. Backed by scientific data, Break Through connects the medical and spiritual realms on a journey of inner healing. With a holistic approach, you can master your default mode and rise to your best self. 

Unlock health, happiness, and inner peace, and open the door to new possibilities that you once deemed impossible.

Thanks to his background, Hosein recognized the extraordinary ramifications of a recent scientific discovery: the default mode network (DMN), which encodes the human ego and influences our thoughts, emotions, and behaviors. Recognizing the profound impact of this breakthrough on self-understanding (both from clinical and personal experience), he wrote Break Through: Master Your Default Mode and Thrive to help readers master the DMN and live happier, more fulfilling lives.

An avid reader and student of science, philosophy, and religion, Hosein draws on a depth of understanding from medical science, neuroscience, Buddhism, Judeo-Christian teachings, and ancient philosophy. Break Through connects the medical and spiritual realms to help readers unlock health and well-being and awaken their higher self, opening the doors to new possibilities and experiences.
