  1. Can't listen. The accent is absolutely winding me up. The upper inflection of ending every sentence as if it were a question, Gargh ! This mindfulness talk is giving me an anxiety attack.

  2. I'd like to see some research on "compassion training" in those of us who work in fields where we must minimize empathy, e.g., physicians, soldiers, nurses, police officers, etc. I know for me and for other doctors I know, we avoid/ do not participate in compassion meditations bc they give us anxiety or trigger some other negative outcomes. Increasing empathy in our roles is not helpful and can be detrimental. But of course it'd be great if we could improve our compassion towards family members or in some way that does not interfere with our duties.

  3. Too many female psychologists….. Too many 60's style "group exercises"……
    Just like "team building"………..
    Zzzzzzzzzzzzz

  4. This is a great talk about scientific research, done in general regarding Meditation. I am wondering, why Transcendental Meditation is not mentioned. This effective and natural Technique, has been proofen and its done Research with hundreds of magnificent results, since over 50 years now. https://www.tm.org/research-on-meditation

  5. hi everyone ,if anyone else needs to find out about meditation effects on anxiety try Reflective Folio Fixer (just google it ) ? Ive heard some interesting things about it and my mate got great success with it.

  6. Nice u-tube but each meditation practiced in this vid is basically a hypnotic induction with suggestions and focused attention, therefore hypnosis ("self") and meditation are the same when accessing different states of consciousness?

  7. Great information – I’ve practiced a moving meditation and conscious movement to overcome anxiety and other symptoms of Menieres. One piece of feedback would be to pay attention to a speech pattern that turns your statements into questions.

  8. The feedback from the mic and this chick's way of speaking is giving me a headache. I can't even tell wbat she's talking about after 10 minutes.

  9. helen weng, why did you change your name 2 english?? your name is half english half chinese, but you aint look half english half chinese, you look 100% chinese. aint you like your chinese name?? if so, look in the mirror. dont say that you change your name in order 2 get successful; the sikhs, east-europeans, arabs etc aint change their names 2 english & yet they're even more successful than the chinese.

  10. in zen we practice without any gaining idea. i still think that meditation is completely useless. otherwise, what would be the point?

  11. Meditating for 2 years now , i learned it to deall with my aspergers symptoms ,i gain better focus and i dont stay in a tough for so long i can let it go .

  12. Techniques of Breathing Meditation call "Anapanasati" by Buddha.

    The purpose of training meditation is to acknowledge the truth of nature "Impermanence".

    Your thought(or emotion, feeling ect.) is impermanence when it comes up and your perceived it, its called birth. When its gone your brain changes activity, the thought is extinguished. This is process of energies or Birth and Death.

    The example of light bulb, our eyes/brain can't consciously distinguish flickers faster than about 30 per second. If we look to the fluorescent that have a flicker rate of 120 cycles per second (or 120 Hz), we would see it as steady or continuous light.
    Similarly, people who never train the mindfulness can't consciously distinguish the process of energies Birth and Death. so they understand that the thought is continuous, i am thinking , feeling, having emotion continuously and this are our thoughts or our lives.

    On the other hand, anyone who trains meditation and try to observe this process(the impermanence), he will acknowledge that the thought(or emotion, feeling ect.) isn't him (i am not the thought, the though is not me) because he is watching its birth untill its death. All of these are only the activities of energies or causes and effects – action and reaction of your brain from five perceptions(eyes ears nose tongue body).

    Because of attachment result in suffering.

    For example, if you perceived that somebody Mr.A (who you don't know) is death, there would be no reaction of sadness appear to you. but if that person is your beloved one, there would be suffering as reaction.

    We train meditation to understand the truth of the suffering,
    what is Suffering?
    what is the Cause of suffering?
    what is the Extinction of suffering?
    and How to End of suffering?

    Then unattached to these world … be liberated from suffering.

    Wish eveyone free from suffering ^

    **buddha words**
    What is the Noble Truth of Suffering?
    Birth is suffering, aging is suffering, sickness is suffering, dissociation from the loved is suffering, not to get what one wants is suffering: in short the five categories affected by clinging are suffering.

  13. Nice presentation. Meditation is the first step to take control of our life. Once we become good at it, we need to level up by eating less and exercise more. Finally, following the yogic precepts to correct our behavior(control our different urges). In the end, we become a master of our body and can manifest our ideas into this physical reality in the most efficient way possible. Without the beginning of meditation, we are just a slave to our sensory perceptions.

  15. Meditation practices originated from Hinduism culture then sweepe into bhudisam but this is not acknowledged in above research

  16. mindfulness is the opposite of the meditative state. The exercises and ideas in this talk are about contemplative techniques.Contemplative techniques can bring the mind to a state where a meditative state can occur but this is entirely a spontaneous event and cannot be created. As soon as there is mindfulness or an awareness of self the meditative state has ended. Mindfulness and the meditative state are mutually exclusive, one cannot exist if the other exists. If you are thinking you are most definitely not in a meditative state.

  17. Can consistent meditation helpful to get through chronic depression without medication? Also can it help with borderline personality disorder?

  18. The limbic system is the mammalian brain not the reptilian brain… I'm pretty sure she lost all credibility at that exact moment

  19. Thank you for sharing! I just started meditating three months ago in an effort to curb severe premenstral syndrome and endometriosis symptoms. I am finding that while I still have some of the negative symptoms, they are lessening and my mental / emotional reactions to them are mitigated. I am also quite calmer and more focused during the time of the month when I am not PMSing.

  20. graph at 47:20 is interesting though I'm not sure how to interpret it. Plus shouldn't the ranking be reversed with the most hours being ranked nearer first place in rank ?

  21. Here's the problem. When tackling anxiety and depression with meditation there's no way to objectively (quantitatively) measure the progress. And if you can't track your progress you inevitably loose motivation to be persistent in meditation practice. So there's nothing other than faith that could keep motivation glimmering. But again not everyone is predisposed to faith – many people are skeptics by nature. My idea is that meditation is not for everyone.

  22. another boring scientific talk with power points. people with phds and blah blah blah. feel like im in school again. im glad i dont need people with phds to tell me meditation is good for me. peace.

  23. Which study pointed to @45:43 increased gray matter in amygdala as a result of mindfulness training? Did they mean decreased gray matter density in the amygdala as a result of mindfulness practice?

  24. I've been practising meditation for also 4 years now and it gets better for i was an Ice smoker for 10 years i can't even begin to tell you what it did to me this drug it certaintly gave me a hard knock in life.
