Why why why try to explain a wonderful experience such as settling the mind in a scientific way . This is really prevelant in today’s world as I see the use of “pop”science to explain the benefits of mindfulness . Mindfulness being the new more fashionable term for mindfulness .Neuroscience seems to be being used for validating those wonderful ancient techniques such as meditation . For me I keep them separated science needs not to contaminate magic otherwise we will loose what it is to be humans . Let’s let shamans remain shamans and live in these complementary universes…..
