Mindfulness and Mental Health

The Agenda with Steve Paikin

Meditation and Eastern contemplative practices associated with Buddhism or Hinduism have long been outside the purview of science. In the past decade, however, there has been a tremendous growth of empirical research into the effects of "mindfulness" on mental health, and its lasting impacts on the brain. The Agenda convenes a panel to discuss the rise of mindfulness in the mental health field, and the "continental drift" of science and the Western mind towards Eastern philosophy.
