M I N D F U L N E S S makes us more inclusive, trusting and nondiscriminatory based on age or race. ❤️ In a 2015 study at Central Michigan University by Professor Adam Lueke, showed that mindfulness meditation caused a decrease in implicit race and age bias. The subtle kind of racism and ageism that lives in our unconscious. ❤️
Lueke then conducted a follow up study where research participants played a game that measures trust levels. Control participants trusted white interaction partners far more than black ones, but the mindfulness group trusted both groups almost identically.
Just one more reason to get on your mat or meditation cushion NOW. The world needs you to. 🌈✌️🌎 ❤️
