Serena -- Wisdom from the Great Masters on how to live a happy life
About This Show
Show Info: Science is showing that meditation and mindfulness really work. For example, we now know that meditation not only lowers stress and improves mental sharpness but it also strengthens our immune system, gives us more youthful and healthy brain tissue, and can be as good or better than prescription drugs for treating mental illnesses like depression, addiction, and autism. So maybe there is something to what all those ancient masters were talking about. Turns out when you strip away the religious and institutional covers, they figured out how to feel happy, healthy and fulfilled and told us how to do it. But just learning to meditate, practicing mindfulness, or learning how to sense and move your energy isn't enough. You need a framework in which to practice these ancient techniques. Unfortunately, if you don't want the layers of institutional confusion and control that come with religion, there is almost nowhere to go. This podcast addresses that gap. It breaks these mysterious teachings down into contemporary language so that we can all benefit from the profound insights into the human condition provided to us by the likes of Buddha, Jesus, Lao Tzu and so many others. You can also find Serena Guided Meditations and the Serena Happy Body Podcast as separate shows. Like the all the Serena Podcasts, it's free.
