Long interesting interview with neuropsychologist and meditation teacher Rick Hanson  : ” These five simple suggestions make up a basic practice that is based on good science. It’s a good illustration of self-directed neuroplasticity.

We can use this knowledge to build up the neural substrates of compassion, self-esteem, resilience, spiritual insight, and deep concentration.”
