Mindfulness therapy works as well as anti-depressant drugs, major new study finds | Online Mindfulness Therapy | Scoop.it
Therapy based on the controversial concept of ‘mindfulness’ works as well as some anti-depressant drugs, according to a major new study.

Inspired in part by Buddhist philosophy, mindfulness involves training the brain to deal with negative emotions using techniques such as meditation, breathing exercises and yoga.

Mindfulness Can Improve Your Attention and Health | Scientific American

Mindfulness Can Improve Your Attention and Health | Scientific American | Online Mindfulness Therapy | Scoop.it

"The opposite of a wandering mind is a mindful one. Mindfulness is a mental mode of being engaged in the present moment without evaluating or emotionally reacting to it. Hundreds of articles lay out evidence showing that training to become more mindful reduces psychological stress and improves both mental and physical health, alleviating depression, anxiety, loneliness and chronic pain...Mindfulness training works, at least in part, by strengthening the brain's ability to pay attention."

Mindfulness training helps us develop more general awareness and more acuity of awareness.

Eileen Cardillo's curator insight, March 1, 2013 11:42 AM

University of Miami cognitive neuroscientist Amishi Jha reviews the evidence for the beneficial effects of mindfulness training and the importance of attention regulation in mediating those effects. It's a great overview of some of the key studies so far, including some very recent and compelling research.

 

My only quibble is with her assertion that these effects are *specific* to mindfulness training. For example, she writes, "mindfulness training uniquely builds the ability to direct attention at will through the sea of internal and external stimulation while also allowing for greater awareness of what is happening in the moment." We don't actually know that yet. We have insufficient data to so decisively reject the notion that other contemplative practices might not have similar effects - comparative studies are woefully lacking at this point.

 

Similarly, she writes, "Many sages, beginning with Buddha Siddhartha Gautama, have advocated repeated engagement in these forms of meditation as a route to increasing mindfulness in daily life." The Buddha certainly packaged mindfulness training in a novel religious and psychological framework, but I would not go so far as to claim that mindfulness training *began* with this historical figure. One of the most interesting questions for contemplative science to address in the future concerns which mechanisms, if any, are truly unique to Buddhist-inspired mindfulness practices. The jury is still out.

The Heart and Science of How to Make Mindfulness Work: ELISHA GOLDSTEIN, PH.D

The burgeoning field of mindfulness, neuroscience and psychotherapy just never gets old to me. I am on a panel with Chris Germer, PhD, author and leader in the field of self-compassion and Ruth Buczynski, Ph.D., president of the National Institute for the Clinical Application of Behavioral Medicine (NICABM) talking about a recent series that explored the question, how do we truly make mindfulness work in our lives?

 

The series includes Dan Siegel, Jack Kornfield, Ram Dass, Marsha Linehan, Tara Brach, and Joan Halifax on how it can not only reduce stress, but help with a variety of areas of life including our relationships. The topics included the most current neuroscience research, how we can use it with trauma, chronic pain, depression, shame and even its potential benefits for aging. We start to  learn how self-compassion actually works and the freedom from recognizing our common humanity.

 

The actual heart and science that’s continuing to come out about mindfulness and its neurological benefits is incredibly motivating.

 

Did you know that mindfulness practice is showing that we can grow the area of our brain that’s responsible for learning and memory (the hippocampus)? So there’ll be less of the, “Honey, did you remember where I put my keys?”

 

Did you know that mindfulness practice is showing a reduction in the fear center of the brain (amygdala) and an increase in the rational brain (prefrontal cortex), so as you practice you literally rewire a steadier mind?

Did you know that mindfulness practice is being connected to lower depression scores, and we can actually see why in the brain? When people practice then spend less time in the brain that is responsible for rumination, all the old stories that keep us stuck and more time in connecting to the area of the brain responsible for sensing the world.

 

Did you know there are areas of the brain we now know are connected to empathy and compassion, and we’re seeing growth in those areas too with mindfulness?

 

This is real evidence and sometimes knowing the science behind it can step us into a place of awareness, release the shame and open us up to possibility.

 

Reading it here is one thing, listening to people talk about it is another thing, and sometimes it’s good to hear people talk about it live.

Most of all, why not start bringing into your day right now, we can begin with the STOP practice.

 

Whether you’ve done it before or not, allow this to be a moment of training your brain for the better .
