The Practical Neuroscience of Buddhism

Post by zackster » Tue May 25, 2010 3:01 am

I feel like this one could benefit you guys :) When I was reading "power of now" I thought to myself, "sounds great", but I didn't really understand how or why it worked. This may help some.

Thanks, zackster, I ordered it -- let us know how the supplements work...

Sounds very intriguing - thanks for the heads up.

Just read parts of it online--and it reads very credibly. I've ordered it too. Thanks for the rec.

Thanks for that post ... it motivated me to buy Csikszentmihalyi's books. I'd heard about them elsewhere and look forward to using his take on these ideas to improve my concentration on work.
Stop talking. Hear every sound as background. Look straight ahead and focus. Take one deep breath. This is you. This is Now.

Having not yet read the work yet, but revewing some of the IONS stuff (http://www.noetic.org/), I wonder if we will be chatting about the chicken and the egg.

Does enlightenment cause all the measurable somatic changes or can that process be reversed with diet supplements or spiritual practices or drugs, producing enlightenment...?
