  1. Very interesting and informative. We be interested in seeing further empirical scientific studies concerning the effectiveness of meditative practices in furthering mental? and physical health.

  2. I didn’t think I would find? this man’s delivery compelling, but the first time he smiled I thought I was looking at Danny DeVito. Win.

  3. @JuniperSprouts I was just watching another youtube video that might be beneficial to you. It is called ‘The Psychology of Change’? by Rob Williams regarding psych-k. It is about an hour but in the end he will give a demonstration and it seems to make a lot of sense. Hope this helps.

  4. I would meditate if I could? figure out a way to stop fidgeting with my genitals when I sit quietly. Then, as things heat up, I inevitably see my scrotum. The sight of that elbow-scrag-covered ball-bag does nothing for my depression. It is a horrible cycle.

  5. @colloredbrothers There may be ‘n’ number of lectures and talks to explain the relation between the music and the mind and also there may be a 100 plus practical approaches to support it, but I? feel that ultimately, it all comes down to Meditation – Calming down the mind is the main aspect of every technique. The music to achieve this remarkable state of mind, need to not necessarily be a musical instrument. Even the beat of the human heart is a sound that would calm the mind.
