Scans of Monks' Brains Show Meditation Alters Structure, Functioning

The egg-heads teach many coping mechanisms i.e. therapy, excercise, education, mentorship, yoga and the like.

However, back in the day, another less taught coping strategy was meditation. A calming sedentary and spirutual undertaking that many throughout the ages have found to be the best answer to an overall healthy beingness.

Enjoy & discuss. Click here...
