Episode 48: Can meditation do harm? – with Willoughby Britton, PhD

Meditation only has benefits right? Well, there are a number of cases where people experienced adverse effects, where meditation had results that were unexpected and perceived unpleasant.

This podcast will be very insightful for meditators and is an absolute must for yoga and meditation teachers! Because as my very first guest on this podcast, I found probably the world expert on this subject to talk to me about it! Willoughby Britton, PhD, did a lot of research around the adverse effects of meditation, gives training on this subject to meditation trainers and has her own foundation, Cheetahhouse, for helping people in need with guidance when meditation led to (sometimes very serious) adverse effects.
And in this episode, you can learn what she found in her research as well as working with people that experienced adverse meditation effects.
