Episode Description

Turns out looking into information that centers around the brain is a complete nightmare. Even for a biology focused person like me. When considering meditation it’s unsurprising that this is the path we were led down. So what did we find? What is the truth about meditation and the brain and how deep does the research go? Join hosts Shanti and Danny as we explore meditation and how it affects the brain.
