Deep Concentration in Formal Meditation and Daily Life

Post by MrPeabody » November 5th, 2011, 5:43 am

This is a presentation by the meditation instructor Shinzen Young (my first meditation teacher) given at GoogleTechTalks which gives a short meditation exercise followed by a lucid explanation of meditation. This should be good for those who want a basic introduction to meditation. Also, he discusses the the growing interest of science in meditation and gives an interesting conclusion of his vision of the future.
