Lately, the mindfulness and meditation have become the 'remedy' for all that which concerns us. Uncovering myths and preconceptions, these two giants of the Neurosciences and psychology show where the information has been distorted to commercialize mental training methods.

In addition to peace States that produce these exercises, the true benefits of meditation are given in the transformations of our personality traits. Goleman and Davidson show that, more than long hours of dedication, requires a diligent practice that includes retreats with a teacher or a more detached look at oneself (aspects not covered in the more superficial versions of mental training).

Delving into the latest studies carried out in the laboratory of Richard Davidson, the authors outline a new methodology able to develop a wider range of techniques that will help us get a high benefit from practice.
