    Hey Mark: Have you explored any meditative or contemplative practices?

    It seems to me there are just about endless types of practices which address all the issues that Iain brings up (and address many he doesn’t bring up).

    I’d love to see more discussion on this site about practices that can radically shift/transform attention:

    recognizing stillness, spaciousness, silence underlying our mind’s constant chatter.

    practices that directly enter into the “heart” – loving kindness, gratitude, etc

    practices of Presence, which seems to me to go beyond LH/RH, though perhaps when we live with the RH as “Master” we have more access to Present

    present moment practices, which seem to me to shift from LH to RH dominances

    shifting from the “Story” of the LH to sensory awareness, particularly sounds, which I find the single most rapid and easiest way to shift from LH to RH dominance.
