meditation for the brain and neuroscience

Meditation is the most functional integrative medicine of the 21st century. Pioneering evidence supports that our thoughts create a foot print on the brain and meditation can shape the brain in a positive way. From neuroplasticity to brain epigenetics, meditation has a strong footing in the new wave of integrative lifestyle medicine.

Explore how you can integrate this cutting edge science and meditative awareness into your life, your professional practice and improve your interpersonal relationships.

YIMI’s meditation programs are for therapists, teachers, and medical and health professionals alike.
