An excellent blog post from Mark’s Daily Apple (author of the Primal Blueprint, the lifestyle/nutritional guidelines I follow) about the neurological effects of meditation on the brain. I have wanted, for a long time now, to plan a trip to an ashram in India or Thailand to teach English to the monks there and in turn, have them teach me to meditate. Does anyone know of a place/meditation retreats (in the US, even!) where you can go to meditate for long bouts of time? I am so interested in this idea but do not know where to start so if you have any information, please comment!
