Brain Research Confirms Yoga Lessons

V.S. Ramachandran is one of my heroes. He manages put into simple and clear language the most revolutionary ideas in neurology and brain research. In the video below, he may have just provided us with scientific proof that indeed we are all connected.

As I go deeper into my studies of Yoga, I continue to be amazed that the yogis of so many hundreds and hundreds of years past were already exploring these areas.

Questions to Ponder:

  • What is consciousness?
  • What is self and not-self?
  • How am I connected to you and everyone?
  • How do I deepen my awareness in each and every moment?
  • How does knowing a bit more about brain chemistry and function make a difference to my awareness of self and my yoga practice?

So here it is, another amazing video from the folks at TED Talks.

V.S. Ramachandran on the Brain Chemistry of Empathy

Please let me know what you think.

Shalom & Namaste,
