Who looks outside, dreams.  Who looks inside, awakens".~ Carl Jung.

"Can Contemplative Practices Change the Brain in Beneficial Ways?"

Neuroscientific research confirms what ancient wisdom traditions have long professed: meditation practice is associated with changes in the brain that improve attention and emotion regulation. 


When each of us learns to appreciate the critical
 importance  of ethics and makes inner values like
 compassion and patience an integral part of our basic
 outlook on life, the effects will be far-reaching. At the
 level of the individual, doing so will help bring about
 greater happiness and provide a real sense of purpose
 and meaning in our lives. And at the level of society, as
 more and more of us do the same, there is a real chance
 that we will move decisively in the direction of a culture
 that is less materially focused and instead pays closer
 attention to our inner, spiritual resources. The benefits of
 doing so will be shared by all.
