Science
Is there scientific evidence for the positive effects of meditation?

The fact that we can actually alter our brain structure through mediation is most surprising to me and somewhat reassuring. Because however we feel and think today, it doesn't have to be permanent. It can be altered, read: made more sustainable, in an eight-week mindfulness course.

  1. Currently there are about 100 theoretical papers on the effect of meditation on ego. It seems worthwhile to verify the claims made by the tradition of insight meditation, not only by personal experience of meditators, but also by a scientific evaluation.
    • It may bring the method of deconditioning known to a wider audience, and thus bring more peace to the world, as ego does no longer need to be defended.
    • A second reason is that it may help science to progress, as the mentioned mechanisms of conditioning and deconditioning are plausible and highly relevant.
  2. In one study, a research team from Massachusetts General Hospital looked at the brain scans of 16 people before and after they participated in an eight-week course in mindfulness meditation. The study, published in the January issue of Psychiatry Research: Neuroimaging, concluded that after completing the course, parts of the participants' brains associated with compassion and self-awareness grew, and parts associated with stress shrank.
  3. Studies show that in the minutes right after meditating, we experience feelings of calm and contentment, as well as heightened awareness and empathy. And, research even shows that regular meditation can permanently rewire the brain.
