Research published in the Journal of Neuroscience indicates that meditation has more potent pain-relieving effects on the brain than morphine or other pain-relieving drugs that reduce pain by 25 per cent. This study is the first to show dramatic reduction in both the brain activation related to pain, and the experience of pain itself.
“We found a big effect – about a 40 per cent reduction in pain intensity and a 57 per cent reduction in pain unpleasantness,” said lead author of the study, Fadel Zeidan, Ph D and post-doctoral research fellow at Wake Forest Medical Centre.

“It’s almost normal today to feel as if you have ADD (Attention Deficit Disorder). We’re all suffering from stimulation overload and sensory exhaustion” says Pamela Barge, MS, LPC, NCC, Director of Personal Coaching & Psychotherapy Associates, LLC dba Personal Coaching & Psychotherapy for Women. This is what led Pam to put together her special weekend mindfulness retreats which she offers to professional colleagues as sanctioned continuing education programs as well as to the general public. “These special weekends are offered as a special time away…a time to check out from the world and into ourselves for a time”. With sunrise and candlelight yoga, tai chi, delicious plant based meals, mindful consideration of what the Buddhists call ‘Noble Silence’, opportunities to practice sitting and walking meditation as well as stimulating group discussions with like-minded folks, this may be just the ticket to slow things down and to become more connected with yourself and with life.

There is, on the whole, World Wide Web nearly 200 million websites. An almost unclear offer of data, information and communication possibilities.
According to estimates the daily transferred and publicly data amount amounts in 2011 to about 500 Petabyte (1 PB = 1 million GB). To be able to fancy itself this unbelievable flood in bits and bytes better: 500 Petabyte correspond to the 2,000-fold data amount of all books which have been written in the whole world – into all languages.
