The Science of Meditation: impromptu talk in Hamburg
April 24, 2012
a well attended talk
Hamburg – 16 April 2012: When visiting the Buddhist Centre in Hamburg
as part of a Seminar of the Konrad Adenauer Stiftung
, I was asked to give an impromptu talk on the Science of Meditation. Talking about the historical developments of meditation research as well as current findings, from improvements of attention to boosts to the immune system, I was amazed to see the level of interest and alertness at this time of the day (or rather night).
The friends there do not only meditate but show a keen interest in understanding what science makes of their endevour. Truely inspiring.
