Which Kind Of Meditation Is Better? [2:51]

Description

This video quickly reviews a new study about several kinds of Buddhist styles of meditation.  The study showed that different kinds of meditation provided different kinds of health benefits.  Counter to the stereotype of meditation, some kinds don’t help you relax but can instead improve cognitive functions and have other benefits.  However, attaining these benefits often takes years of practice.

Discussion Questions

  • What were the four groups of meditation studied?
  • What did the researchers measure?  What effects did the four kinds of meditation show?
  • Does anyone have any experience with meditation?  What was it like?

Keywords: meditation, well being, mindfulness, research, Buddhism
