Meditation

The article link we offer below is for those interested in knowing about the beneficial impacts meditation can have not just on our thinking, but on the very structure of our brain. Much of our brain's structure will build up or atrophy depending on the mental activities in which we habitually engage, proving brain physiologist Donald Hebb's long-held adage - neurons that fire together, wire together. The article makes reference to a thickening of a brain structure known as the Anterior Cingulate Cortexwhich parallels the Corpus Callosum, the dense nerve bundle structure that joins the right and left hemispheres of our brains. We suspect this structure is likely heavily involved in the Integrating Self Function of which we speak in our book.
