Description: In the last century science has proven the brain is elastic and therefore able to be trained and molded. This idea however is far from being a revelation. Buddhist monks and serious yoga practitioners did not require science to prove what they have been practicing and benefiting from for thousands of years. The enormously powerful skill of meditation was not cultivated to be under utilized in the simple management of stress and relaxation. It was practiced and perfected to gain deep insight into the workings of mind and into the nature of perception and reality. In order to understand how to establish an effective practice we will spend a small amount of time on the methodology. However, the majority of time will be spent in practice as it is here where meditation has the power to transform our lives.
