Growing up, my sister was the one who was very much into all this stuff, all this Eastern stuff, not me at all. Then I got a Doctorate of Physical Therapy and became a physical therapist/practitioner of Western Medicine and kind of thought I knew everything about everything and poo-poohed alternative stuff. Although, as Dean pointed out a few posts ago, once there is research to support it, as there is a massive amount of evidence to support both meditation and chanting, it should no longer be considered alternative. Very, very good point. Why is it still considered alternative? Who the hell knows? I digress. Like I said, growing up my sister was the one who was way into yoga stuff, not me at all. Well, times have drastically changed. Now I’m the one that has made this my lifestyle. I meditate everyday and it makes me feel amazing and has helped rewire my brain. My brain was a little damaged a few years ago. Actually a lot damaged. So – meditate, it changes the brain.
