The ACSJ Presents: Jessica Vineyard, The Science behind Meditation.
While many Americans have long considered meditation to be a “woo-woo” technique practiced by fringe hippies, researchers have been uncovering fascinating data about the benefits of a long-term practice. Meditation has been shown to have tremendous effects on stress levels, and new studies now provide evidence of significant benefits to the brain, as well. Join Jessica Vineyard to learn more about the scientific evidence of the benefits of meditation.
Jessica Vineyard is a book editor by trade, full-time world traveler and a digital nomad by choice, and atheist by reason. She has been practicing Vipassana meditation for more than eight years.
