I’ve long suspected that my mindfulness practice helps prevent me from getting ill. In my old life, before Mindfulness, I worried a lot and I was sick a lot. If someone sneezed within a mile of me, then I’d catch it. Winter was one cold after another with maybe an episode of “wipe out” flu, thrown in for good measure...

 

Editor's Note from Eden Kozlowski: Meditation... mindfulness... could they be practices that help with almost everything?! Even the common cold. Ooooo, yes!

Meditation


Interviewed by Eden Kozlowski,
ATH Co-Editor of Meditation

Rick Hanson, Phd

Hello, All Things Healing. Eden Kozlowski here. Today I am chatting it up with a pioneer in the field of mindfulness and meditation… Rick Hanson, PhD.

First a quick note before we let him “come in”… Dr. Hanson went to UCLA at age 16 and graduated summa cum laude in 1974, which is the same year he started practicing meditation. This is just the beginning of the list of the achievements for this gentleman. Dr. Hanson… Rick, how are you today?...

 

Editor’s Note from Eden Kozlowski: Dr. Hanson is a true mindfulness pioneer. His studies and work allow this practice to be more embraced and understood from a rational perspective. Listen or read on.

Editor's Note from Eden Kozlowski: Here's my youngest reviewing a new book by our friend and fellow meditation teacher, Betsy Thomson.

Editor's Note from Eden Kozlowski: Part 2 of Dr. Judson Brewer's discussion on the "remarkable findings" that science has uncovered about the practice of meditation.

Editor's note from J. Stewart Dixon: Gangaji was one of my teachers; over the years I watched, read, sat with, went on silent retreats with, cried and laughed.  She's truly one of the great teachers of our time.  "Call off the search" and "Wake up first" are two very powerful pieces of spiritual advice/suggestions that any spiritual seeker can benefit from.  Is this a paradox?  You bet.  Welcome to the world of spiritual awakening...

 

Meditation


 

Editor’s Note from Eden Kozlowski: What a great documentary. Very eye opening and - of course - I love, love, love that it showcases acupuncture, nutrition and meditation as brilliant adjuncts to classic western treatments because they work! These methodogies tap into our bodies' own will and desire to heal without medication, surgery, etc. And, as the movie states, they are also effective because 70% of medical issues are related to lifestyle! Yowza, what an incredible stat.

 

Meditation


by Michael Erlewine

I get asked all the time what books I am reading. I invariably answer “I don’t read books, per se, anymore; I read some Buddhist texts, but that is about all.” That is a bit of a smug answer. I am perhaps deflecting the question rather than trying to explain what it is that I am doing about my reading habits...

 

Editor’s Note from Eden Kozlowski: In this article Michael explains how his meditation/mind work combines with his astrological work. He speaks of going beyond books and rationale to discover deep ideas and thoughts within your own "inner essence." This can apply to anyone in any job, field or specialty.

 

Meditation


 

Editor's Note from Eden Kozlowski: Yes, meditation and mindfulness are a "panacea" (a remedy for all difficulties). Dr. Brewer says that the evidence "suggests" this. In my world, there is nothing that is "suggestive" – I see the hard core results in my meditation classes every darn week. We tackle the healing of depression, negative body image, addictions (smoking, sexual, alcohol, sugar, etc), chronic pain, anxiety, fear... I could go on and on. Here's the simple thing – anything that is going on with the body is a reflection of what is going on in mind. And, if you can just listen, in quiet, with detachment... you can change everything.

 

Meditation


by Erica Boucher

At least, this is what OSHO used to say. OSHO was an Indian-born teacher and leader on meditation and spirituality. He understood that our emotions and our creativity are closely linked together...

 

Editor's Note from Eden Kozlowski: For me...  meditation helps me access my creative powers and gives me an outlet for my emotional energies that need a place to flow. What is your outlet? For creativity? For emotional release?

 

Meditation


by Bill George

The movement to develop mindful leaders in business is at a tipping point, as interest from corporations, educational institutions and the media continues to grow...

 

Editor's Note from Eden Kozlowski: Further down in the article, Bill talks about his own meditation practice which he does twice per day for 20 minutes... "This has been the single best thing to improve my effectiveness and sense of well-being. Meditation enables me to forget less important events and focus with clarity on significant issues. My most creative ideas come out of meditation. In addition, meditation increases my energy level and enables me to be more compassionate toward others." Yep.

 

Meditation


by Matthew B. James, PhD

Do you multi-task? While many people say they get so much more done in a day doing many things at once, let’s take a look at how splitting your focus can impact your results, relationships and overall health and happiness...

 

Editor's Note from Eden Kozlowski: As a meditation instructor I am continually sharing with people the sometimes disheartening news that they can't "effectively" multi-task... our brains just aren't set up for it regardless of how good you think you do it. Of course, part of this is teaching people that a mindful and singular focus can actually enrich experiences and, oddly, help you get things done faster.

 

Meditation


 

Editor's Note: Rodney Smith (c. 1947) was a hospice caregiver for a number of years, and is currently an author and the guiding teacher of the Seattle Insight Meditation Society, an organization he founded in 1993. Smith was born in Kalamazoo, Michigan and drafted during the Vietnam War, serving in Belgium as a medic. He returned home and became a social worker, when one evening he attended a lecture by Ram Dass in Cincinnati, Ohio that made him inspect his life more deeply—becoming a vegetarian and doing meditation...

Money and Meditation

by Ken McLeod

A question that has long drawn my attention appears at first glance to be quite simple: what is money? I’ve come to the feel that it is a collective thought.

Let’s turn to meditation for a moment. When we sit in meditation, resting the attention with the breath, thoughts come up. Sometimes when they arise, they just disappear without disturbing the attention. Sometimes when they arise, we are distracted and begin to think...
