With recent advances in the neuroscience of meditation, we now understand how different styles of meditation impact the brain. Meditation is not a one-size-fits-all process. Some styles of meditation activate the brain, while others seem to quiet it down. Some styles are better for managing stress and anxiety, while others are good for increasing concentration or developing empathy. We can use this knowledge by combining ancient meditation practices and modern technology to design effective and efficient meditation programs tailored to each individual.
In this Master Class, we will explore four specific styles of meditation that are based on the role of attention, intention, brainwave states and the brain regions involved; these styles include Focus, Mindfulness, Open Heart, and Quiet Mind.
