Bridging International Wisdom with Modern-Day Neuroscience

Our brains have a unique characteristic, "Neuroplasticity.” The neurons in the brain are highly receptive to reorganizing and forming new connections. They are hard-wired to adapt and compensate to changes in our environments. Extensive scientific research is clarifying that our brains have the capacity to actually grow new cells. The advent of the MRI has given researchers an amazing tool to evaluate and study the effect of external stimuli and its impact on the brain.

This new technology has unleashed a way to document and understand the impact of ancient healing techniques that up to now could not be evaluated. Now scientists like Dr. Richard Davidson from the University of Wisconsin are able to study and report the impact of some of these techniques on the structure of the brain. The results of the research are astounding; eight minutes of meditation actually changes the pre-frontal cortex of our brains.

Why is this research so profound? It means that the capacity of the neurons and the neural networks in the brain are able to change their connections and behavior in response to new information, sensory stimulation, development, damage, or dysfunction.

Our brains contain a blueprint for us to heal.
