Meditation is touted as a magical cure-all with only benefits by a variety of voices in both religious and secular circles. But could meditation and mindfulness have any adverse effects? Are there possible bumps in the road when taking a religious practice and putting it into a secular context?
Scholar and PHD candidate Anna Lutkajtis has released “The Dark Side of Dharma: Meditation, Madness and Other Maladies on the Contemplative Path” and she fills us in on all the lesser known and talked about meditation challenges and negativies that are often left out of conversations about the contemplative path.
