David Vago, PhD offers a neuroscience of mindfulness update providing clarity on what mindfulness is, is not, can and cannot do, and what is known about effective prescribing and dosing of meditation. He is research director of the Osher Center for Integrative Medicine, director of the Contemplative Neuroscience and Integrative Medicine Laboratory at Vanderbilt University Medical Center, and an associate professor in the department of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation and department of Psychiatry. Dave’s research focuses on the healing effects of meditative practices for a variety of mental health and physical pain disorders. Three years ago, Dave and I recorded in-depth dialogues on awakening, which are still available on my Youtube channel.
