Science Vs Meditation – Is there a Connection?

As more and more research emerges on the importance of meditation for healing, I encourage everyone interested in natural health and wellness to engage in this simple yet meaningful practice of relaxation and regeneration. My own personal meditation sabbatical has been profound for me, and as this process winds down, it is my deepest desire to share what I have learned during this time with anyone seeking deep healing and rejuvenation.

Regardless of your age, health, or belief system, simple regular meditation practice can benefit you on all levels. As more and more doctors and health practitioners are recommending this ancient, time-tested practice, meditation is on its way to holding a well-deserved reputation as a simple, yet powerful and safe modality for supporting health and preventing illness. 

After listening to Kelly McGonigal’s talk, I have no doubt that meditation is therapeutic. I am CERTAIN. In my years of healing career, i have shared this techniques with my patients, many of whom are cancer-related and or stress, depression-sufferings individuals. 

It seemed that we are able to go into an alternate default mode which does not engage our evaluation system, (in other words our experiential system is decoupled from our evaluation system) which helps us to function more effectively. We become more mindful, and suffer less.

The Talk describe  that the neuroscience of meditation can help us understand how practice shapes the mind, and offers fresh insight into concepts like mindfulness and suffering.
