Urban Savior - Saving You from Boregams on Daily Basis Research on meditation Scenes of Inner Taksang, temple hall, built just above the cave where Padmasambhava is thought to have meditated Research on the processes and effects of meditation is a growing subfield of neurological research. Modern scientific techniques and instruments, such as fMRI and EEG, have been used to see what happens in the body of people when they meditate, and how their bodies and brain change after meditating regularly. Since the 1950s hundreds of studies on meditation have been conducted, though many of the early studies were flawed and thus yielded unreliable results. More recent reviews have pointed out many of these flaws with the hope of guiding current research into a more fruitful path. More reports assessed that further research needs to be directed towards the theoretical grounding and definition of meditation.

L'intelligence collective vue du Japon ! Je vous invite à découvrir un extrait du discours d’un grand patron japonais, très récent puisqu’il date du mois de juin 2015 : Nous allons gagner et l’Occident va perdre. Vous n’y pouvez plus grand-chose, parce que c’est en vous-même que vous portez votre défaite. Vos organisations sont tayloriennes ; mais le pire, c’est que vos têtes le sont aussi. Vous êtes persuadés de bien faire fonctionner vos entreprises en distinguant d’un côté les chefs, de l’autre les exécutants ; d’un côté ceux qui pensent, de l’autre ceux qui vissent. Pour vous, le management, c’est l’art de faire passer convenablement les idées des patrons dans les mains des manœuvres. Nous, nous sommes post-tayloriens : nous savons que le business est devenu si complexe, si difficile et la survie d’une firme si problématique, dans un environnement de plus en plus dangereux, inattendu et compétitif qu’une entreprise doit chaque jour mobiliser toute l’intelligence de tous pour avoir une chance de s’en tirer.

Nondualism Nondualism, also called non-duality, "points to the idea that the universe and all its multiplicity are ultimately expressions or appearances of one essential reality." It is a term and concept used to define various strands of religious and spiritual thought. Its origins are situated within the Buddhist tradition with its teaching of the two truths doctrine, the nonduality of the absolute and the relative, and the Yogacara notion of "pure consciousness" or "representation-only" (vijñapti-mātra).
