The Neuroscience Behind Meditation: Episode 214 with Ariel Garten

In today's episode of the Personal Development Without The Fluff podcast, we're extremely happy to sit down with neuroscientist, innovator, and entrepreneur Ariel Garten who shares her powerful insights on in the field of neuroscience behind meditation 

“Most of us shut off from emotion because we're afraid of it. The practice of observing the sensation in the body without making up a story about it – is incredibly valuable” – Ariel Garten

Firstly, as practitioners and advocates of meditation, it was extremely interesting to sit down with Ariel to hear about the neuroscience behind the benefits of meditation.

Science is this amazing thing that in essence keep proving things that humans have intuitively known for a long time. For instance, hearing Ariel speak about her research and inventions is truly incredible.

In addition, knowing what she does with people resonates with what we at Satori Prime do. Helping people find safety and unconditional love internally first so that they can be the best versions of themselves out there in the world.

In conclusion, the glimmer of hope that at some point we will have technology that can bring meditation, science and coaching systems that are personally designed to anyone in the world – it's mind-blowing.

“Love is tremendously healing. Most of us go through our lives seeking love and hoping that we could have love filled up for a brief moment. Not recognizing that love is something we already have – and just is” – Ariel Garten
