Meditation Increases Empathy

by in General, Inside, Meditation, Mind.

Meditation Increases Empathy Researchers at the University of Wisconsin-Madison have found that meditation has the potential to increase an individual’s empathy towards others, and can even change brain patterns associated with empathy and compassion. Study director Richard Davidson and his associate scientist, Antoine Lutz, hope that their results may be especially applicable to reducing instances of childhood bullying, as well as aiding those individuals prone to depression. Davidson says, “we wanted to see how this voluntary generation of compassion affects the brain systems involved in empathy.” For their study, Davidson and Lutz worked with 16 Tibetan monks, who had over 10,000 hours of practice cultivating compassionate meditation techniques. They also included 16 …

There Are No Obstacles To Transcending

by in General, Heart, Inside, Personal Power.

There Are No Obstacles To Transcending There are no obstacles. Applies to one kind of ‘meditation practice’, transcending.  Transcending is easy, effortless, fun, and effective. It generates refreshment, peace, energy, and joy. Because of all these satisfying characteristics, we practice it regularly. Our only problem is that very few people believe us! They prefer to think that all meditation practices are difficult, or frustrating, or have little effect on daily life. Or at least that transcending is not as unique as the scientific research has shown. We don’t like learning something new. Inside every human being is an ocean of pure, vibrant consciousness. When you ‘transcend’ in Transcendental Meditation, you …

4 Studies On How Meditation Can Heal And Help Your Life

by in General, Meditation, Mind.

Our pace of life is often frantic, our minds are always busy, and we’re always doing something,” says Andy Puddicombe at the TEDSalon London Fall 2012. “The …

22 Time Saving Hacks I’ve been testing and adjusting various productivity techniques for the past five years, read lots of books (most of them repeating) and here’s some of my findings: It’s not about time. It’s about energy. We try to squeeze as many hours in one work day, to be “productive”, but in the end everything depends less on time, and more on your focus, motivation and overall well-being (all of them linked directly with energy levels).Some of the key findings: Decide what’s important because in 5 years, 80% of what you do today will not turn into anything. It’s just busywork, no useful outcome. Sleep, food and exercise can help …
