The Neuroscience behind Mindfulness

I just came across this article this morning–Neuroscientists and the Dalai Lama Swap Insights on Meditation.  This is a fascinating article on the neuroscience behind meditation and mindfulness.  You do not need to practice Buddhism to benefit from reading this.  This is a worthwhile read simply because it lets you step into the science behind how your brain functions when you practice focusing…and when you don’t.  Why do we suffer from the whims and follies of our reckless “neurowanderings”? Can we do something about it? Well, yes, it seems that we can.  Okay, but can we do something about it short of joining a Buddhist monastery? Read on.

P.S.

Any article that I post on my blog will be “archived” under the Enrichment section of my blog for easy access.
