Better Living Through Neuroscience

Welcome - please read our Disclaimer

This website introduces you to an extraordinary application of recently acquired knowledge in the field of neuroscience. The techniques described herein are based in evolutionary biology and offer you the opportunity to live a healthier, hopefully happier and more productive life. To Western eyes, to watch pain instantly disappear, long standing problems resolve and disturbing memories fade into the irretrievable past is nothing short of astonishing.

We call this method Havening. Havening, the transitive verb of the word haven, means to put into a safe place. While some forms of this approach have been around for decades, many mental health professionals remain skeptical given that it involves no medication, talking or prolonged exposure.

We invite you to explore this website and make up your own mind.
