neuroplasticity: hope for the brain, another great blog

There is plenty of info found at Discover and Recover what remains of a great blog by Duane Sherry I found.

Neuroplasticity refers to the brain's ability to change. Only in the last 20 years or so has science become aware of the neuroplasticity of the brain. Previously, it was thought that the brain stopped growing and changing when we were young children.

I have added to my meditation a focus on compassion for myself (which can only lead to further compassion to others). I hope as I grow in compassion for myself that I will be able to extend it to others, as well. For the time being, my meditation is focused on me.

    This is what works - each day - doing our best.
