Donald Altman, MA, LPC, best-selling author of The Mindfulness Toolbox, 101 Mindful Ways to Build Resilience, and Clearing Emotional Clutter

"Dr. Jeff Tarrant, a reasearcher in human consciousness for over 15 years undertook a surging and cutting-edge work in understanding the latest brain wave patterns and mechanism during meditation. Meditation Interventions to Rewire the Brain is Dr. Tarrant's platform of presenting what is happening in meditation in health and in disease conditions. The book presents the essentials in understanding the neuroscience of meditation to models of brain wave patterns in regular meditation practices and in clinical conditions frequently encountered like PTSD, ADHD and Depression. Jeff Tarrant’s emerging knowledge of the brain and its relationship with meditation will guide future scientists and usher this subfield of neurological research called neuromeditation.”
Master Glenn J Mendoza, MD, MPH, author of Better Person Mindset

"There is abundant spooky mysticism surrounding the art of meditation. However, there is also plenty of science. Unfortunately, most meditation groups are not aware of this science, and as a result, don't develop or teach the best practices. Meditation Interventions to Rewire the Brain validates meditation on a scientific level spanning from the neuron to brain waves, subjective experiences of meditation and how that ties into the science. Jeff also presents self-assessment tools, the roles of various brain regions and ample examples of the benefits of meditation with regular people. Jeff also describes how to meditate and what to expect as practice effects build over time. This book is the most straight-shooting, scientifically-based, easy-to-read book on meditation written to date. It is a MUST-HAVE for those who want to learn meditation, but need some science and also good practical tools to overcome their skepticism. In our noisy, cluttered, hectic world, Meditation Interventions to Rewire the Brain should be in every clinic and home."
Dave Siever, CEO, Mind Alive Inc.

"Dr. Tarrant's book has the perfect balance of technical precision and creativity, scholarship and personal experience. This is more than a workbook about how to 'rewire the brain.' Integrating information from diverse fields, it presents practical steps to reduce anxiety, increase compassion, improve focus and, improve quality of life. Meditation Interventions to Rewire the Brain is written as much for the clinician as for teh meditator or anyone who wants to recover joy of life in these stress-filled times. I highly recommend it!"
Kenneth Cohen, author of The Way of Qigong
