Meditation - Science topic
A state of consciousness in which the individual eliminates environmental stimuli from awareness so that the mind can focus on a single thing, producing a state of relaxation and relief from stress. A wide variety of techniques are used to clear the mind of stressful outside interferences. It includes meditation therapy. (Mosby's Medical, Nursing, and Allied Health Dictionary, 4th ed)

Complete Treatment of Diabetes (Very briefly).
Formulated by Sumeru Ray (Maharishi MahaManas)
If no internal organs are severely damaged then complete recovery is possible through this treatment. There are no side effects of this treatment. However, without sufficient knowledge, consciousness and desire to gain health, this treatment method of mine will not be effective. 'I will just take medicine and be fine'. This way of thinking must be abandoned.
It is a four-pronged treatment method. These include:
1) A nanomedicine specially made from human pancreatic gland that will heal the pancreas. Another nanomedicine associated with this will protect patients from autoimmune disorders.
2) A combination of herbal medicine that will heal the liver, gallbladder and digestive system.
3) Meditation and Nidra Yoga should be practiced regularly in the prescribed manner to gain mental well-being. Along with that, light exercise should be done regularly.
4) Autophagy or fasting should be done every fifteen days. Or to fast every night.
Although I created this method long ago, I never tried to establish it. Because establishing a new medical system requires a lot of effort and spending a lot of money which is not possible for me at this age. If any powerful person and organization come forward, I am ready to help them on condition. thank you

I'm researching about side effects of meditation and another spiritual practices (like reiki). Sometimes call me patients with these kinds of problems: emptiness, kundalini emergence, dark night of the soul, anxiety crisis or depression symptoms after a meditation retreat, etc.
For these reasons I write this article:
But there are not many works in this way, and less about treatment of these patients. Do you know about it?
Anybody remember the large breathing/meditation research conducted by MIT?
I remember the study is conducted ONLINE in late 2010s.
I believe it's conducted via MIT, but not 100% sure... The online enrollment is opened, the participant learn breathing, and control themselves including anxiety and many other things.
Any clues, please?
What mediation model should I chose
Hypothesis: Pain Catastrophizing Mediating the effect of Psychological Flexibility on Physical Functioning in Patients with Chronic Pain over time
I have one measure before starting acceptance commitment therapy (in an RCT), 6 months after, 12 months after, and now years after.
Could I use a longitudinal meditation model to look at the relationship between pain catstrophising, psychological flexibility and physical functioning over time?
Is latent difference score mediation appropriate?
Teacher: I feel so exhausted all the time
Central Office: Have you tried yoga or running or meditation?
Let's stop telling teachers to do yoga and meditate (UNLESS that’s what they want and choose to do). Instead, let’s advocate for making teaching a sustainable career!
I am doing a research(as part of 3rd semester) on the effect of meditation on academic stress. Aim of the study is to see if meditation has helped university students in academic stress reduction, through paired sample t-test for understanding pre and post study. I am also trying to understand if only the participants with high level stress in pre study were benefitted and the participants with low stress level has maintained the score. Which statistical test can I use to address the second part of my aim?

1)What is the appropriate statistical method for analyzing research data since the predictor variable is discrete and the criterion variable is continuous?" the predicting role of hand superiority, creating a work of art and practising meditation in a lucid dream" The data on creativity and meditation practice are classified as yes and no, handedness with right and left and lucid dream data with a 28-question questionnaire.
2) what are the best statistical methods to compare these three groups of data( left/right-handed, mediator/non-mediator, create a piece of art/ non-create)? Variance? Or t_test?
A client's depression has not been alleviated although she has been completely compliant with treatment. She has no family history of other mental illnesses. She has tried pharmaceuticals (Prozac, Wellbutrin), diet changes, exercise, meditation, and lifestyle changes for the last 30+ years and now wants to be off of antidepressants. Since psilocybin is still not approved clinically for depression, she wants to be able to legally participate in a study she believes could help many people including herself.
Hi! For my project I must use Neurosky Mindwave EEG, which only has one electrode, and it is placed in Fp1 area. I have been doing research and it seems that I can't study anything related to P300 there. However, attention or meditation states are well reflected in that place. Are there any other aspects which can be studied in Fp1 considering that I have no information about other areas? Thank you all in advance.

Our paper is about adaptations of practices from the East in the West, including yoga, mindfulness and other forms of meditation. We are looking for references that support that practices are compromised when not applied in full. This could be because of people or organisations 'cherry-picking' what suits them while ignoring the philosophy in which they are embedded, or other examples that have been soundly explored, or a related theory.
Thanks in advance, scholars!
I am going to have a control and an experimental group. My experimental group will be receiving compassion meditation. I am measuring pre and post scores of relaxation. I have the personality factor openness as a moderator. How do I run this in SPSS?

A binaural beat is an auditory illusion perceived when two different pure-tone sine waves, both with frequencies lower than 1500 Hz, with less than a 40 Hz difference between them, are presented to a listener dichotically.The difference between the two beats form a third beat (binaural). Auditory beat stimulation can be used to modulate cognition, reduce anxiety levels, increased focus, increased concentration, increased motivation, increased confidence, deeper meditation as well as to enhance mood states.
Will be it a valid research design or else there is a need to control group? I have heard about 3-armed randomised controlled design. Is it possible to have 4-armed randomised controlled design.
I request all senior researcher to clarify it.
I’m a student of philosophy and religious studies. I’m also someone who practices mindfulness techniques to deal with stress and the effects of some permanent physical injuries. I’ve been impressed by how mindfulness has improved my life, and I’m interested in learning more about its history, how it works, and how it affects others. As part of a research project, I’m asking mindfulness practitioners some basic questions about their relationship with mindfulness to better understand how people use, understand, and benefit from their practice.
If you’re interested in participating, please complete my short survey and feel free to pass it along to others. It only takes about 3 minutes since it consists of just 3 demographics questions and 4 questions about mindfulness. It is 100% anonymous and will not ask for any contact information. The survey closes at 5PM EST on April 2nd, 2021.

Altered states of consciousness (ASC) induced by meditation, psychedelic drugs, or impending death are quite a fascinating but challenging field of investigation. By exploring the mechanisms behind essential phenomena in ASC from a unique perspective, we find out that ASC are a story about perception in nature: The interaction between two sources of stimulation to perception, the shutting down of perception, the filtering mechanism of perception and the delusions of perception.
At the meantime, we discover the correlation between Buddhism and ASC: the essence of Buddhist Vipassana is enhanced awareness in ASC.
Thereupon we introduce time dimension and reveal the science behind Buddhism.
Altered states of consciousness (ASC) induced by meditation, psychedelic drugs, or impending death are quite a fascinating and important field of investigation. This paper argues that ASC essentially have nothing to do with consciousness, but a story about perception. Furthermore, by introducing time dimension, we reveal the science behind Buddhism from a psychological perspective.
Our study starts from summarizing four essential phenomena (hallucinations, paranormal phenomena, mystical experiences and enhanced awareness) in ASC on the basis of empirical materials of Aldous Huxley, Timothy Leary and others.
Then we propose an original model for hallucinations as a breakthrough: When false internal stimulations and external objective stimulations affect perception together, the changes in their relative strength will result in the consistence, breakdown and re-consistence of the five senses, leading to three basic states of hallucinations (one can distinguish reality from fantasy, one cannot distinguish reality from fantasy, and reality and fantasy are totally reversed).
As an implication of this model, the third state of hallucinations suggests a novel hypothesis to interpret extrasensory perception (ESP): the essence of ESP is that false internal stimulations are mistaken as external objective stimulations which enter through sensory organs, while real external objective stimulations are mistaken as perceptions which do not result from sensory organs when one is in deep hallucinations. Moreover, in the second state of hallucinations, the inconsistence of the five senses can also explain various marvelous psychedelic phenomena in ASC in combination with the amplifying function of enhanced awareness discussed later and the mechanism of out-of-body experiences. Thus, we arrive at a conclusion that paranormal phenomena are simply illusions that happen along with deep hallucinations.
Mystical experiences occur in Samatha. Based on the experiential description, it can be inferred that the essence of Samatha is perception shutting down to activate a new mode of apperceiving, one totally different from the usual five sense mode of perception. Hallucinations also disappear because perception shuts down.
Enhanced awareness is highly significant in ASC and could be explained by a perception-filtering model in light of Henri Bergson’s innovative idea: In ordinary conditions, perception has a natural threshold for its sensitivity for the purpose of biological survival; but in ASC, awareness becomes more sensitive because the perception-filtering function gets weakened to allow the influx of more details, resulting in various unusual capabilities, one of which is Buddhist Vipassana.
Finally, we develop a universal framework comprising two dimensions (three mechanisms and three stages) to study ASC. By figuring out the complex relationship among them, we reveal the mystery between Buddhist tranquility and insight: Enhanced awareness after Samatha is the path to attain enlightenment.
During the period between 2010 and till date we encountered only one case of bullous pemphigoid. We treated the case with Wrightia tinctoria extract. There was disappearance of signs and symptoms in 12 months of treatment. No signs and symptoms appeared after discontinuing treatment for one year.and six months. The patient was advised healthy dieting and maintain healthy life style.

In this hypothetical study, my group and I are looking at the effects of a meditation intervention on anxiety levels, EMG activity and golf putting performance. These 3 variables would be measured at two time-points: baseline and post-intervention. To assess whether the meditation program was effective, a control group would be used that doesn't do the meditation program.
So to sum up, we would have:
2 groups: Intervention and control
2 time-points: Pre- and post-intervention
2 different anxiety conditions: Low and high-anxiety
2 dependent variables: EMG activity and putting performance
I understand that the test needs to combine within-subject elements (due to the timepoints and anxiety conditions) and between-subject elements (putting performance and EMG activity). So would a mixed-mode ANOVA be used?
I would appreciate any help anyone can give me.
I am interested in studying the anatomical and functional connectivity of human brain using graphs, and their evolution in time. This can be used to distinguish different states in which the brain exists at different times - say, executive tasks, meditation, focused attention such as in video games, etc. I am looking for a good reference book (well-written and with practical examples of the concepts) on how the matrices describing the different types of connectivity can be analyzed and manipulated to extract different kinds of information.
Je travaille sur mon mémoire qui traite des effets de la méditation sur les enfants dyslexiques : amélioration de leur lecture (vitesse et erreurs) et gestion de leurs émotions. J'aimerais utiliser la CAMM et la AFQ-Y pour une évaluation quantitative AVANT et APRES le protocole de méditation, mais je ne trouve pas le mode d'emploi de ces échelles, à savoir comment elles sont cotées. J'ai lu que pour la CAMM, avoir des scores hauts est prédictif d'une non présence mais je n'ai rien de précis ni de scientifique.
Ainsi, vous serait-il possible de me dire comment on traite les réponses à ces échelles ?
Par avance un grand grand merci pour l'aide que vous pourrez apporter à la réalisation de mon mémoire.

I am interested in discussing ways to interrogate guided meditations, specifically journeys and quests, for inclusive language. How do practitioners and educators who incorporate guided meditations work to be more inclusive? I recently decided not to use a guided meditation because of its ableist language. In attempting to reconstruct the script, I began thinking of the assumptions made in guided meditation and began wondering if anyone is doing the work.

I am currently recruiting for research study participants for my dissertation. The topic is "The experience of practicing mindfulness meditation among African American female doctoral students.
I had practiced focused attention meditation and had profound mystical experiences back in 1961.
The after effects were also very strong.
Fast-forward to the years 1964-1992 when I was engaged in research and development in the USA defense industry. Here I was able to see patterns and recognize analogies that others overlooked. This led to many breakthroughs, inventions, and other innovations.
Part of this success I attribute to my ability to SWITCH at will back and forth between the pragmatics of the problem to be solved versus looking at the problem and its context in an unfiltered way - without the baggage of conventional categories or labels or methodologies.
Simple search in Google Scholar shows that since 1960-70 many articles in peer-reviewed journals have supported various desirable effects of Transcendental Meditation (TM) but some people here and there claim that the research has always bee. Funded by certain organizations and people who benefit from advertising TM and the published evidences are not so reliable. Is that really true?
I have come across a lot of research and articles that praise mindfulness meditation. Its ability to biologically change the brain and improve mental well-being are well documented. However, is there any literature on any psychological or physiological negative changes in people due to Vipassana meditation or similar?
Different perspectives and opinions are also welcome.

Hello Deep Thinkers,
Would like to invite you to become involved in a discussion related to my research on wage-earners/blue-collar workers and their avoidance of Mind-Body Practices (i.e., yoga and meditation) to manage stress. More specifically, why are wage-earners so under-engaged in meditation and/or yoga for stress relief in or out of the workplace, in-spite of re-enforcing positive health literature on Mind-Body Interventions?
Thank you in advance for your time and attention,
Meditation practices from India have attracted the interest of experimental neuroscience for many decades, with very interesting but also controversial and sometimes contradictory results. The leaders in these practices, like the Dalay Lama, have indicated their anti-dogmatism in relation to any (extra)ordinary claim of these practices. Have these occidental studies of meditation rescue appropriately the original Indian techniques ?
Some researchers indicate that the results of these studies should not be misconstrued as therapeutic effects. They should not be taken as evidence for truly therapeutic effectiveness...Recent results suggest that there is not clear positive effects on mindful breath awareness practice, for instance (Schöne B, Gruber T, Graetz S, Bernhof M, Malinowski P 2018 "Mindful breath awareness meditation facilitates efficiency gains in brain networks: A steady-state visually evoked potentials study" Sci Rep. Sep 12;8(1):13687. doi: 10.1038/s41598-018-32046-5).
If there are important issues in this remarkable and ancient introspective effort of India, what should be the correct way to study meditation by neuroscientists?
I don't seem to find any further details on the project. I'm quite curious about the project as I've been practicing regular (1-2 hours / day) meditation for many years and have find it immensely helpful in personal, professional and social life. So I would be very interested to know bit more about the project. Many thanks.
I am writing my thesis on the effects of mindfulness meditation on reading in dyslexic children and I am looking for research on how reading works in the brain (what areas of the brain are activated, what mechanisms are involved...) that I would like to relate to the areas of the brain that are activated during meditation.
I know that now, thanks to neuroimaging, we have more accurate data but I can't find any solid documents on it.
Thank you for reading my message and I hope to find answers here.
Good continuation in your work and research.
Je fais mon mémoire sur les effets de la méditation de pleine conscience sur la lecture des enfants dyslexiques et je cherche des recherches sur le fonctionnement de la lecture dans le cerveau (quelles zones du cerveau sont activées, quels mécanismes sont mis en jeu ...) que j'aimerais mettre en relation avec les zones du cerveau qui sont activées pendant la méditation.
je sais que maintenant, grâce à la neuro imagerie, nous avons des données plus précises mais je ne trouvent pas de documents solides là dessus.
Merci d'avoir lu mon message et j'espère trouver ici des réponses.
Bonne continuation dans vos travaux et vos recherches.

My first attempt in thesis was a subject of missalignment and too many dimensions of investigation. I‘m researching the moderation effect of media news on levels of trust and stress at work. My first dissertation advisor missed to propose some of the important suggestions about my thesis. At this point I would like to use existing data to perform moderation/medition effect of media news on the trust-stress relationship.
The problem I encounter is how to define media news variable and transform it from categorical into continuous.
Social information - media news variable description:
- in the first attempt media news were fixed factor
- media news has been assmebled with real TVmedia news collected from three different media houses from their internet portals
- positive media news relates to the connotation of presented content (four different news clipped in one video of total length 8:44)
- negative media news relates to the connotation of presented content (5 different news clipped in one video of total length 8:46)
- there were three different interventions:
- positive media exposure
- negative media exposure
- no media exposure
If I want to measure mediation/moderation effect I have to transform media variable into continuous variable. Any suggestions?
Variables and hypothesis:
How media news moderates the relationship between trust and stress levels at work? Measuring the moderation effect - the moderator variable is manipulated:
1. Moderator - intervention
a) Positive media news = 1
b) Negative media news = 2
c) No intervention = 3
2. Causal variable - Trust:
3. Outcome variable - Stress:
a) Perceived stress levels = ordinal (Lickert scale) transformed into low/high - dichotomous
b) Psychophysiological response to stress = continuous
(delta resistence) - (low/high) - dichotomous
Hypothesis: 1. NH: There is no change in stress levels when media news moderates trust levels.
2. H1: When trust is low, perceived stress levels are high.
3. H2: When trust is high, perceived stress levels are low.
4. H3: When trust is low, psychophysiological response to stress is high.
5. H4: When trust is high, psychophysiological response to stress is low.

I am considering applying for PhD in Interaction Design / HCI, but I was wondering if anyone might have some tips on what topic to focus on for my proposal.
I am thinking about focusing on something related to smell based interfaces to help users with meditation/sleep/age factors etc.
OR wearable technology to help with depression/stress.
I wonder whether anyone may be able to share anecdotal evidence regarding the efficacy or otherwise of binaural beats stimuli on things like meditation, lucid dreaming, dreaming, creativity, sleep, shamanic journey meditation, cognition, concentration, imagination, visualization, etc?
The Integrative Medicine is gaining popularity and acceptance as it consists of many healing therapies to treat many diseases. In mini form it is existing in India as Ayurved doctors always prescribes medicine, diet, yoga, meditation, mantra etc. but the present emerging IM is covering many existing therapies so domain is wider. There is need of a post-graduate course of general integrative medicine open for all medical graduates. As it advances the specialty integrative post graduate course may be introduced like integrative cardiology etc.
These are theories with which I'm familiar so far:
1) Attention Restoration Theory
2) Predictive and Reactive Control
3) Natural settings evoke meditative-like states (which in turn reduce rumination, which prompts a sympathetic nervous system trend towards a more relaxed state)
What other compelling theories are out there that specifically address (or at least explore) the neural, psychological and/or biological mechanisms by which interaction with nature helps to reduce stress...?
(Responses that include links to quality resources would be appreciated.)
Vipassana meditation has been addressed by various authors. But none mentioned the relationship with self psychoanalysis. I believe it is related, based on my own experience. I wonder anybody has similar experience.
There are precedents such as those made by Dr. Andrew Newberg in which meditative or religious activities such as prayer can cause the brain to have greater activity at the level of the frontal lobes of the brain. These protocols can be applied to more dynamic activities
I want to know about mindfulness, its advantages if any.
Please do not attach any file. Be precise in your reply.
I have a model which is to compare the outcomes of two competing IVs (testing which has more of a magnitudinal effect) on two DVs/outcomes, through 1 mediating variable.
Basically how do I analyse through SEM? I realise I have two full mediation models but I then to compare the full mediation models against each other and I dont know if I can do this through SEM?
I am not particularly bothered about the magnitude comparison of the mediation variable effect its just to show it has an effect on the DVs - its the magnitude of the outcomes from the IVs that I am focusing on.
Also can it be done using SPSS?
I need a questionnaire which can measure performance of individual who are undergoing in meditation very first time.
During the period between 2010 and September 2017 We treated over 1500 psoriasis cases. There was disappearance of signs and symptoms of psoriasis in many cases after discontinuing Wrightia tinctoria herbal usage for a period of 5 to 7 years. The patients are advised to follow healthy dieting and healthy life style. No smoking, no drinking and no soft drinks or juices with preservatives,. Night fasting in sleep. No animal protein. Maintain regular physical activity preferably Yoga or exercise. Regular excretion of waste body metabolites through sweat, urine, stool and breathe. To keep positive emotions and to meditate.
Dualism and non-dualism have been discussed by humans from different cultures for millennia. Despite the growth of research into meditation and mindfulness there has been very little work in this particular field. There are extensive expositions of nondual awareness in a number of spiritual and philosophical traditions but little contemporary scientific enquiry (that I have found). I'd welcome signposts to work in the same or related fields to supplement the few papers so far discovered.
We are currently designing an eye-tracking experiment which aims at assessing the effects of complex verbal stimuli (varying emotional valence and intensity) on gaze patterns. I am also measuring physilogical indicators (heart rate, EDA).
Between the emotion inducing stimuli participants will do a short breathing meditation with an emphasis on the outbreath. We do this in order to "neutralize" affect and increase parasympathetic activity as we are concerned with affect "spilling over" between trials.
I know that the parasymphatetic system is slower than the sympathetic but have not found literature on grounds of which I can make an informed decision on the duration of the meditation phase. Do you have any advice/literature for me on that one?
Thanks a lot!
When we enter a meditative state [of mind] which suggests emptying our minds of thoughts, does our "drawing" tend to resemble a blank sheet of paper? Is this sheet of paper truly blank because it does not host a drawing of a thought though? Or, is this simply the depiction of all negative space without being interrupted by positive space?
I have used colour tents as outlined in the paper co-authored with Gordon Dutton January 2015.
Tent like spaces are being used by teachers and parents as a calming space as well as for a visual stimulus.
This idea of colour and colour light tents could be of value in your project.
I would prefer using the BMIS, but I really need help in choosing the "right one".
