Neuroscience and Psychology of Meditation in Everyday Life addresses essential and timely questions about the research and practice of meditation as a path to realization of human potential for health and well-being. Balancing practical content and scientific theory, the book discusses long-term effects of six meditation practices: mindfulness, compassion, visualization-based meditation techniques, dream yoga, insight-based meditation and abiding in the existential ground of experience.

Each chapter provides advice on how to embed these techniques into everyday activities, together with considerations about underlying changes in the mind and brain based on latest research evidence.

This book is essential reading for professionals applying meditation-based techniques in their work and researchers in the emerging field of contemplative science.

The book will also be of value to practitioners of meditation seeking to further their practice and understand associated changes in the mind and brain.
