Algorithms may not be something you would normally associate with meditation, but they are an extremely powerful way to understand meditation. An algorithm is a concept that comes from math, science, and technology. It is…

In the last post, we parsed a basic meditation technique – following the breath – in terms of its algorithmic components (sequences, branching, looping, and optimizing). But what exactly does optimizing mindfulness mean? There are…

In the last post, we discussed what it means for an algorithm to optimize mindfulness. In this post, we’ll look at a practical example of a meditation technique that makes explicit use of algorithms, Soryu…

In the last post, I shared a simple algorithmic technique for using distractions to optimize concentration power. In this post, I’ll share one of several meditation techniques that have dramatically changed my meditation practice and…

In the last post, we explored how to catalyze positive behavior change with a mindfulness-based meditation algorithm. In this post, we’ll explore how meditation techniques can improve our decision-making skills. On Decision Making If you’re…
