Cutting edge scientists and ancient mystic dudes may have more to agree on than you think.
The Science of Yoga explores some of the parallels between science and the ancient practice of meditation.
The Science of Yoga Part 2 examines posture.
Learn more about the scientific effects of meditation on the brain by checking out the work of Harvard Neuroscientist Sara Lazar. Sara Lazar's amazing brain scans show meditation can actually change the size of key regions of our brain, improving our memory and making us more empathetic, compassionate, and resilient under stress.
Check out Sara's TedX talk, "How Meditation Can Reshape Our Brains", below:

“If you want to conquer the anxiety of life, live in the moment, live in the breath.”
Yogis have known the importance of the breath for thousands of years. The ancient sages taught us that “prana”, the vital force circulating through us, can be cultivated and channeled through a spectrum of breathing exercises.
Learning to breathe consciously and with awareness can be a valuable tool in helping to restore balance in the mind and body. Utilize the Breath video to create a controlled meditative breath.

One of our all time favorite teachers is the late Joseph Campbell. Joseph Campbell was a preeminent scholar, writer, and teacher who had a genius for finding the unifying symbols and metaphors in apparently distinct cultures and traditions. Campbell explores the enduring power of the universal myths that influence our lives daily and examines the myth-making process from the primitive past to the immediate present, returning always to the source from which all mythology springs: the creative imagination. He had a profound influence on millions of people--including Star Wars creator George Lucas. To Campbell, mythology was the “song of the universe, the music of the spheres.”
In the video below, Campbell discusses winged fish, the feathered serpent, the Bodhisattva, and the Christ -- all mythological images of a shift in consciousness. This video is a brief excerpt from interviews filmed with Joseph Campbell shortly before his death in 1987, previously unreleased by the Joseph Campbell Foundation.

Physicist Tom Campbell postulates that we live in a virtual reality and the goal of living in this virtual reality is to get rid of fear, ego and beliefs and evolve into the true nature of consciousness which is Love. Being the change we wish to see in the world starts with each one of us and Tom outlines ways that we can affect change in our world by stepping into our role as a co-creator of reality.
In this video, Tom asks:
What is the most significant thing you can do to change the world?
How does your intent and consciousness work together?
This short video from Tom Campbell, consciousness researcher, and author of My Big TOE, gives insights into these questions and more.
