Wem Meditation bisher etwas suspekt und esoterisch vorgekommen ist, bekommt hier einen differenzierteren Einblick.
Wer sich noch intensiver mit der Materie auseinandersetzen will, dem kann ich dieses Buch definitiv als Ausgangspunkt empfehlen. Wer die vorgefasste Meinung hatte: "alles esoterischer Quatsch" bekommt einen Aha-Effekt und wird nach diesem Buch anders denken. Mein Fazit: Lest dieses Buch!

I call this one of my most valued books. Because in it's brief manner, this book tells almost everything that is needed to be known about meditation and its value to everyones life. The authors Wolf Singer and Mattheu Ricard discuss the term and the process of meditation and it's misinterpretations, like apathy or laziness.
The dialogue is structered in that way, that either the neuroscientist Singer or the long-term monk and meditator Ricard share their experiences with meditation and the o I call this one of my most valued books.
The dialogue is structered in that way, that either the neuroscientist Singer or the long-term monk and meditator Ricard share their experiences with meditation and the other person adds their experiences. Of course Ricards view is rather based on experience and Singers on indication, deduction and scientific measurements They both see meditation as a process of self-mastery. Whith mediation you evolve a whole set of skills, which is so very basic and useful in everyday life but developed by so few : Sensory Acuity A great deal of sensory sharpness is needed to differenciate between our daily hallucinations, distortions and the simple what-is.
The longer one meditates, the more he masters his ability to perceive ones interior and exterior environment unbiased and with greater sharpness. Many of our world views are built upon assumptions and interpretated might-bes, as well as our own inner conflicts and values.
Free Will Many philosophers and average people ponder about the free will, whether it is there or not. The authors see the free will as a potential skill.
But is has to be trained. Free will means to chose our action and that what we are. But don't believe to lift the heavy weights of life if your mind is not trained as the strong muscle it could be. Emotions Experienced meditators tell about their ability to evoke in themselves any desired state of feeling within a short span of 30 seconds. Can you belief what that means? To live free of any anxieties, hate or boredom?
Many people don't, for they never experienced their ability to actually create their feelings. Also advanced meditators develop a higher senisibility for their internal states, which enables them to release bad thoughts before they become those overwhelming bursts of unwanted emotions.
Problem Solving Abilities Yes, meditation enables the person to stay calm in stressing situations and activates those braincells which are connected with problem solving abilities, which means people get to move their asses and actually do something about their life situation. Their are other discussed skills and topics like focus, memory, compassion to feel what the other person is feeling , drugs and their effect on the brains, meditation for children?
Are YOU willing to spend 30 Minutes a day to gain such sound skills and improvements in quality of life? This book is spiritual not religious, which means it pleas for one OWN experience not the ones of priests and popes or other cults. But really, besides this passion to take action, the connections between state-of-the-art science and experience of thousands of people during thousands of years of actual meditation is both exciting and fun to read.
As for myself I do not consider myself as a master of meditation, but one who enjoys a gain in all those above declared skills and a set of OWN experiences and abilities to shape my innter and outer life, through a steady practice of meditation and mental rehersals like imagination.
I can really entrust you to that little but blasting book. I have read this book more thoroughly, marked more words in it than in any other book and even created my own table of contents for a reason.
Jan 03, Juliane Roell rated it liked it Shelves: meditation , neuro. Interesting short read. The discussion of neurobiology is insightful, but at times there is no real dialogue taking place: Both participants go into long monologues exposing their worldviews.
While these are not boring, they are of limited use. The perspective of "the meditator" an identification with what is experienced as "the person meditating" is never left or questioned. Nov 06, Kristina rated it really liked it Shelves: read Jan 09, Sara E.
Not bad, I found "Quantum and Lotus" much more interesting though. It kind of cuts off abruptly at page , would have been nice to go deeper.
