This meditation improves your brain’s circuits that detect other people’s emotions and feelings. Brain scans of 10,000 Lovingkindness meditators showed much stronger abilities to connect to non-Lovinkindness practicers! (It is EXCELLENT for teenagers!) Try it out and let me know what you think!
I hope you enjoy my version of Vipassana, one of the oldest meditation techniques on the planet (it is what Gotama the Buddha practiced). It is a powerful practice to help calm the brain, making us not so “reactive.” By becoming less impulsive (changing our reaction pattern), we actually change the structure and functioning capabilities of the brain! According to studies, benefits include: increased focus and inner-peace, decreased stress levels (meditation works better than medication in many instances to reduce cortisol levels), and lower experience of physical and mental pain.
