MAN WAS BORN FREE, YET EVERYWHERE HE IS IN CHAINS Jean-Jacques Rousseau
The NeuroBlog: Life, Liberty & the Pursuit of Happiness.
Welcome ALL ye who seek the true meaning of life, the liberation of the mind and to pursue happiness.
Are you at the point in your life where you seek fulfillment, acceptance, and purpose in life?
Are you denying yourself of freedom because your mind is in a state of emotional chaos?
Are you engaged in the pursuit of happiness yet being happy seemed so elusive?
Once upon a time, I have asked myself these questions and answered with a resounding “Yes!”. I assume you and I are a lot alike and thus at one point in your life, you would have also answered with the same resounding “Yes!”.
And in my line of work, I have often encountered countless individuals faced with these questions and shared the same answer. In fact, I have helped and guided many of my clients to find answers to these questions.
Allow me to introduce myself. My name is Jun Han and I am a hypnotherapist, social scientist and workshop facilitator.
BLAME IT ON ROUSSEAU
Just let me give you a brief account on how this blog materialized. It happened on a fine rainy day in August, when Jean Jacques Rousseau’s quote: “man was born free, yet everywhere he is in chains” hit me like a runaway train.
It reminded me of the many instances of self-sabotaging behavior in my life. This human tendency for self sabotage (as many of my clients and workshop participants can testify), often happen along the charted path of freedom, happiness and a fulfilled life.
The one common denominator of what I intend to share in my blog in line with Rousseau’s quote (and borrowing a line from the United States Declaration of Independence) can be summed up in one sentence:
Hence, one Rousseau quote and a moment of introspection later, this blog is born.
WHAT YOU WILL FIND HERE
Back in 2007, I had a blog called He Says and She Says where I wrote about “relationship, love and other life hazards”. That blog lasted 2 years and 44 posts. I will feature 10 articles from that blog under the category of “Love and Relationship”.

Life’s Like That – on personal musings
Food for Thought – on thoughts and insights about life from observing people and their interactions.
Liberating the Mind – ideas on how to shift mindsets for a more effective living
Therapy and Behavioral Change – taken from my therapy playbook
