Altered Traits: Science Reveals How Meditation Changes Your Mind, Brain, and Body by Daniel Goleman & Richard Davidson

“One thing is clear to me: We all travel to so many places these days, but rarely do we draw our senses inwards and take the quest that so many wise people before us have embarked on – the journey into the inner self. In the last ten years I found myself going into complete silence and meditation under the guidance of great teachers.

I feel very lucky, as I had the chance to experience what meditation, Mindfulness, philosophy & brain research can teach us about life. More than ever do I believe what Mingyur Rinpoche, the 2 Pac of Tibetan Buddhism says: “In order to move the world, we must be able to stand still in it”. A beautiful principle we can put to the test each day.
