In addition to looks at the field of contemplative science in general and the work of Richie Davidson and the Center for Investigating Healthy Minds in particular, our current, March 2012 magazine also looks to four people who’ve worked with meditation to see how it’s affected their lives. Earlier we shared with you the story of social worker Isabel Adon of the Bronx; now meet New Yorker Lyssette Horne, a survivor of sexual abuse who grew up to become a media activist working for equality and social justice in the LGBT community. Click here; we bet you’ll be glad you did. Then, see the magazine for two more “Living Proof” stories, from prolific British author Tim Parks, and plane crash survivor Julia Ferganchick.
And: what about you? Are you living proof that meditation can make a real difference? If so, we’d love for you to share your story here in a comment.
