Compassion Meditation Rewires Brain’s Emotion Circuitry

  • Blog


What if meditation and thoughts of compassion could rewire our reactions to others?  If you could heighten your empathic abilities and connection to others, would you?  A recent neuroscience abstract in PlosOne indicates we actually can do this very thing through meditation.  “Together these data indicate that the mental expertise to cultivate positive emotion alters the activation of circuitries previously linked to empathy and theory of mind in response to emotional stimuli.” What would change about your life if you cultivated some more compassionate thoughts today…perhaps even compassionate thoughts about yourself?
