Richard Davidson Google Tech Talk

Awarding winning scientist, Richard Davidson, PhD, has done truly interesting research into the effects of meditation on the brain.

Google brought him in to give one of their "tech talks" in 2009. It's long, but well worth watching - fascinating as well as educational and useful. Davidson talks about a new neuroscience sub-field called contemplative neuroscience, including his study of the connection between meditation and increased compassion.

NeurOptimal® neurofeedback has a meditative quality to it for many of my clients. It is very much about being in the present moment more of the time. We're at our most effective there, our most connected to ourselves and others and are most able to respond appropriately to what comes our way in life.

Please post any comments or questions here on the blog, or feel free to email me.
