Spirit Vaults : Meditation - Study

Preliminary studies in two new independent research programmes suggest a link between meditative practice and increased melatonin as measured by the major metabolite (six-sulphatoxy-melatonin) in the urine. In the first study of its kind, Ann Massion and others at the University of Massachusetts Medical Centre recorded the difference between melatonin levels of eight experienced meditators and a control group of eight non-meditators. They found a higher level of melatonin in meditators than in non-meditators. Neuroscientist Ranjie Singh at Saybrook Institute, Western Ontario Research Park, used a similar technique in a study of 12 healthy meditators and another three with cancer.

He sought to learn if a combination of mantra intonations, visualization, specialised breathing and deep meditation could stimulate the pineal gland, as measured by melatonin. Did You Know? "We are living in exponential times" (A Must Watch, Really)

10 Myths About Introverts

Around that time, I was lucky enough to discover a book called, The Introvert Advantage: How to Thrive in an Extrovert World , by Marti Laney, Psy.D. Sure, anyone who knows me would say, “Duh! A section of Laney’s book (page 71 through page 75) maps out the human brain and explains how neuro-transmitters follow different dominant paths in the nervous systems of Introverts and Extroverts.
