    • Hello, have you heard about sound healing meditation, you can find what it’s all about from the http://bit.ly/1MS6GMq.

      • Hi, is there any type of meditation for kids?

        • Kids and adolescents are also invited to meditate as it helps in improving memory and concentration, see the details from http://bit.ly/1SEejVO.

    • I have also practiced this type of meditation and it’s so effective on the creativity side, it improves concentration and cognitive ability. For further explanations, don’t hesitate to go on http://bit.ly/1SEejVO.

    • Meditation is also interesting as it creates a state of deep relaxation and good feeling of wellbeing.

  9. Mindful meditations goal is to go below the ego or conscious mind or half of the brain.  We try to connect to the right brain.
    The right side is not literal, has no right or wrong or dialogue.  Words and numbers are pixels, so yes we are more creative.  mindful meditation is an accumulative practice.  
    each time you practice the connection between the two hemispheres grows and becomes a little thicker.  Equanimity is how Zen describes it.  I describe it as intuition.
    When the ego has less impact we become more creative.

  10. One of the features of mindfulness I have found to be very helpful in psychotherapy is the enhanced focus, sustained attention and concentration ‘practice’ that one has . . . which I have found with numerous clients to be very beneficial. ADHD clients, clients who have had stroke or head injury, even some clients with mild dementia have benefited from the improvements they have found when learning mindfulness and relaxation. One client had been programmed in public school as mentally retarded but actually had a severe learning disability and was also had ADHD. Once she learned mindfulness and learned some stress management and progressive muscle relaxation skills, and gained some faith in herself, she was able to finish a college degree with just a few accommodations. I am not surprised at the benefits research is finding when people are able to get centered and use more of their cognitive abilities.

  11. I think that any discipline, mind expanding, mind flexing practice tends to override habitual, rigidly defined notions of what constitutes reality.
    The folks I have met who have, in one way or another, opened their minds would as a side effect, tend to be more cognitively flexible, more relaxed, open minded, more creative, less uptight. They’ve loosened their grip on what’s so.
    On the other side of that equation lurks rigidity, where flexibility is perceived as a threat to stability, to one’s fixed bottom line world view which tends to be rigidly held and vigorously defended. One might characterize these folks as close minded, inflexible, cognitively impaired.
    The Buddhist notion of “I-don’t-know mind” promotes open mindedness whereas
    extreme fundamentalist views and thinking by contrast, are often righteously held, impenetrable, sealed off, aggressively defended.
    Based on my experience, people with whom I am acquainted who subscribe to the aforementioned view, tend to be more uptight, anxious, and threatened by novelty and change. As a consequence, their creativity tends to be bounded, curtailed, diminished, dwarfed. In brief, close minded.

  12. As a psychiatrist who treats anxiety, depression as well as doing couples therapy I find that using mindfulness and the concept of a beginners mind has been incredibly helpful to change automatic fixed reactions to more open mindful responding. I encourage all my patients to begin a practice and find that it helps not only control the automatic reactions but opens them to new ways of looking at old problems. The research is very exciting for me because I have always thought this to be true that mindfulness meditation would help problem solving. Now someone has shown it. Thank you for the reference !

    • Hi Jeanne,
