What about neuroscience? Also, what is the deal with keeping the eyes open?

May 8, 2017   |   Leave a reply

Hello, meditator!

Before this week’s practice, I answer a 2-part question from Open Heart Project meditator Carole:

I would like to know if you combine the latest neuroscience research results with ancient wisdom on meditation? I would like to know why in the ’70’s I was trained to close my eyes during Transcendental Meditation and now you say to keep the eyes softly open.

With love,
