Wem Meditation bisher etwas suspekt und esoterisch vorgekommen ist, bekommt hier einen differenzierteren Einblick. Es handelt sich hier um KEIN trockenes Sachbuch über Hirnforschung oder eine belächelnde Darstellung des Themas aus Sicht der Wissenschaft.

Und es überzeugt hinsichtlich der Idee, dringend Meditation zu lernen.

Not bad, I found "Quantum and Lotus" much more interesting though. It kind of cuts off abruptly at page 133, would have been nice to go deeper. ...more
