      MindReaders - #2 The Science of Meditation

      YOU are invited to the 2nd MindReaders meetup where we will be discussing THE SCIENCE OF MEDITATION! What is MindReaders?  MindReaders is a community group that invites people to meetup to discuss books, podcasts or articles about the mind.  The aim of MindReaders is to create a community of people who would love to spend time reading, listening to and discussing books, podcasts or articles about the mind. This isn't about becoming an expert or figuring out the meaning of life, it's just about getting together and having a chat about something that's pretty complex and amazing, but can also often be difficult to manage at times for many of us. Together we will strive to put in place actions and habits based on what we learn at each MindReader meetup! What will we be discussing on 20th August? The Science of Meditation.  Research has shown that meditation can help with many parts of our life, from stress, to relationships to sleep. Given the increasing popularity of meditation, and in particular mindfulness, i'd love to invite you all to discuss a couple of podcasts which interview Richard Davidson and Daniel Goleman about the science of meditation. They have both written a book called "Altered Traits: Science Reveals How Meditation Changes Your Mind, Brain and Body".  What do WE need to do before turning up?  To help us kick-start our discussion on 20th August listen to these two podcasts:  1. Making Sense with Sam Harris - #111 The Science of Meditation (1hr26mins) 2. The Ezra Klein Show - How the brains of master meditators change (30th May Episode - 1hr10mins) There is a small fee of £4.50 which will be donated to the mental health charity Mind!
