Summary:
Sweeps away the misconceptions around mindfulness and other forms of meditation, showing how smart practice can change our personal traits and even our genome for the better. Goleman and Davidson reveal what we can learn from a one-of-a-kind data pool that includes world-class meditators. They share for the first time findings that show how meditation--without drugs or high expense--can cultivate qualities such as selflessness, equanimity, love and compassion, and redesign our neural circuitry.
