From Sam Harris: There are many forms of intro­spec­tion and mental training that go by the name of “medi­ta­tion,” and I have studied several over the years. As I occa­sion­ally speak about the bene­fits of these prac­tices, people often write to ask which I recom­mend. Given my primary audience—students of science, secu­lar­ists, nonbe­lievers, etc.—these queries usually come bundled with the worry that most tradi­tional teach­ings about medi­ta­tion must be intel­lec­tu­ally suspect. · Go to How to medi­tate →
