    I am wanting to learn about the science behind meditation. After googling I found reference to this book:

    Zen and the Brain: Toward an Understanding of Meditation and Consciousness by James H. Austin. Most reviews on Amazon.com are positive. I'm just wondering if others here have read it and would you recommend it?

    I'm also looking for other recommended reading on the science behind meditation.

    Thanks very much!

    Hi,
    A book that helped me to understand meditation is "Coming To Our Senses" by Jon Kabat-Zinn.
