Dr Farias and Dr Wikholm put meditation and mindfulness under the microscope. Separating fact from fiction, they reveal what scientific research tells us about the benefits and limitations of these techniques for improving lives, as well as illuminating the unexpected, and potentially dangerous, consequences of these now ubiquitous practices.
Dr Miguel Farias has pioneered brain research on the pain alleviating effects of spirituality. He was a researcher at the Oxford Centre for the Science of Mind and a lecturer at the Department of Experimental Psychology. He is the founding director of the Brain, Belief, and Behaviour Lab at Coventry University.
Dr Catherine Wikholm is a Clinical Psychologist and a Chartered Psychologist educated at Oxford. She has worked within the specialism of children and families, both in the NHS, as part of (CAMHS), and in private practice.
