Deep Concentration in Formal Meditation and Daily Life

Postby 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.

“Ever have the experience of getting home from work and realizing you have a blistering headache?â€￾ said Jocelyn Sze, a doctoral student in clinical science at UC Berkeley and the lead author of the study. “The headache probably built up throughout the day, but you might have been intentionally ignoring it and convincing yourself that you felt fine so that you could get through the demands of the day.â€￾

Increasingly, mindfulness meditation is being used to treat physical and psychological problems, researchers point out. “We believe that some of these health benefits derive from meditation’s capacity to increase the association between mind and body in emotion,â€￾ Levenson said.
