About the Event
“Cobwebs of mind are cleared with the meditation broom” -Swami Veda Bharati
Passed down from one generation to the next, the technique of meditation is an art of clarity, self-awareness, and enlightenment. In times like this, where the future seems uncertain, meditation reminds us that it is the present moment that holds the truest gems of life. However, as we make incredible advancements in neuroimaging and computational neuroscience, we may ask how meditation enables this clarity of the mind to be developed. Is it a placebo effect, or can we explain its effects through the mechanism of neuroplasticity?
Join us and KCL Meditation Society in exploring the neuroscience and research behind meditation alongside some guided meditation sessions.
