This appeared in the January 30, 2011 issue; it's not a new study.
But it's pretty amazing! It makes me wonder if the changes are permanent. And for us long-term meditators, is daily meditation necessary to keep the gains? Or is occasional meditation enough, assuming the depth of the experience is maintained?
Hi Madie, I didn't realize it was old as it just popped up in my newsfeed.
Now, that is a question that will prod us not to be lazy about our meditation practice!
The Kirtan kriya meditation has also been studied and found helpful for the brain in Alzheimer's patients and their carers.
I suck at sitting quietly but will happily sing for a half hour. . It's the first and only meditation practice I've ever enjoyed.
I had been meditating for a long time before I got ME. Now I see that mindfulness meditation can prevent or lessen anxiety and panic attacks. I've never had anxiety or panic attacks so I now wonder if it's because I've been meditating for 40 years.
I too had been meditating for a long time before I got ME (about 20 years in total, started about 12 years before ME). I've never had anxiety, panic attacks, depression or anything like that. However, I have no idea if my meditation practice has had anything to do with that or not... It definitely has been a great help in finding acceptance, coping with stressful situations, getting deep rest when sleep wouldn't come etc. It hasn't made me less sick, though.
