Sean Lennon: TM ’calms my brain down’
July 11, 2014
Touring the world with his new record, the otherworldly Midnight Sun, Sean Lennon spoke in a recent interview about what daily practice of meditation means to him:
“For me, Transcendental Meditation is like a scientific method to calm my brain down and to make my frontal lobe more active.
It’s an exercise, really. It helps me to have about 10 per cent more conscious thinking, which is good, because we make a lot of decisions in our subconscious that aren’t always good – like the decision to smoke cigarettes or to eat bad foods.”
