Clifford Saron TEDTalk – “The majesty of the present”

Perfect! A 16 minute TED video on meditation, health, and the nature of the mind.

The meditative brain

Interesting short talk on the Saron lab’s efforts with their “shamatha project”. Lots of cool stuff here. What interested me the most: Apparently Dr. Saron has a paper discussing the increase in telomerase (an enzyme used in DNA replication – its also expressed highly in cells that divide often) after an extended meditation retreat. I wonder if they figured out what tissues it was highly regulated in? Cool.
