A Drug Free Alternative to better Well-Being


Meditation and the BRAIN

What happens in your brain when you meditate?

  • Using modern technology like fMRI scans, scientists have developed a more thorough understanding of what’s taking place in our brains when we meditate. Coupled with this is a relatively new scientific understanding- “neuroplasticity” – which makes it possible to healthily increase the strength, size, and density of our brains, just like physical exercise can make your muscles stronger, denser, with more endurance. The implications of this finding are immense, with meditation being the frontrunner as one of the very best brain exercises!

  • When one meditates, the overall difference in the brain is that the brain stops processing information as actively as it normally would.

  • Meditation naturally and beneficially increases the neural mass (gray matter) of the brain by harnessing the brain’s “neuroplastic” potential

  • Neuroscientists now view meditation as the top way to upgrade your brain, with the potential to transform your life in many big ways.

  • In the image on the right you can see how the beta waves (shown in bright colors on the left) are dramatically reduced during meditation (on the right).
