The mechanism behind meditation’s transformative potential is called self-directed neuroplasticity.
Neuroplasticity is science’s term for the brain changing structure and function as it adapts and learns.
And the “self-directed” piece refers to your ability to intentionally shape your brain by using it in a specific way during meditation.
You are using the mind to change the brain, like a child crafting a Playdough structure. It’s empowering to know that you are in control of your own mental fitness.
