The other day we shared with you BBC culture correspondent David Sillito’s first installment of an ongoing look at the connection behind mindfulness meditation and science. Would eight weeks of the practice of Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) in fact reduce stress, or even, in the case of Sillito’s friend and case study Fiona Assersohn, chronic pain caused by Lupus? And what would a neuroscientist, or a pain researcher say about all this? Find out here in Sillito’s followup.
