Google invites authors, researchers and artists — anyone with anything interesting to say, to come to Google to give talks to their employees. Videos are made of these talks and put on youtube on the GoogleTalks channel. In this talk, Shinzen Young, a westerner, a former monk, a scientist and a professional meditation teacher introduces the audience at Google to “concentration”.

Young claims that concentration……bringing the mind back to an object after a distraction, is a basic skill at the base of all human endeavors. This is a very clear, down to Earth, accessible talk

Hi Jhana4,

This is a long video and I have to take it in stages. But this man is very good indeed. I am impressed!

I had not heard of him before (I live in the UK). Do you know him, or did you just stumble across the video?

I might post again when I have watched the whole thing.

But many thanks.
