Neuroshaping to mindfulness

Neuroshaping can be defined as the use of methods that have demonstrable and lasting impact on the brain with the purpose of creating or increasing desired experiences, states, or skills.  These methods may include low-tech approaches, such as meditation, or high-tech approaches such as brainwave entrainment and neurofeedback.

In future posts, I will describe in greater detail the project, the technologies it uses and some of the results I have had.

A few days ago, my book on meditation, The Attentive Mind Workbook:  Self-healing through Meditation, was published.  It can be obtained from my website,
