Meditation for Dealing with Chemobrain
Meditation for improving “chemobrain” using Kirtan Kriya.
Kirtan Kriya is a simple meditation from Kundalini Yoga that has been studied at UCLA by Dr. Dharma Singh, author of Meditation as Medicine, and has been shown to improve memory and cognition and decrease inflammation, two areas of interest for cancer survivors.
There are multiple tasks in this meditation: movement of the fingers, speaking the sounds, moving through the voices, and observing your experience in a kindly way without judging yourself.
Eyes are closed. In a more advanced practice to be described later, there is an additional mental focus.
