Transcendent Thinking Encouraged!

As I sit outside with my family today watching the solar eclipse, I can't help but feel the deep connection to the universe that these kinds of events always seem to inspire. I don't think it could be a coincidence that I came across this article this morning reporting on research which seems to indicate that transcendent thinking is for brain growth in teens.


“What we found is that the degree of brain growth — but not the original thinking in the interview, you actually have to do the work of growing your brain — is associated with also growing who you are,” Immordino-Yang said. “And then that identity development in turn, a year and a half or two years later, predicted how satisfied kids were with their lives and how much they liked themselves.”

In the study, the researchers propose a “developmental cascade” effect in which transcendent thinking leads to brain growth, which in turn leads to life satisfaction.

I hope that all the teens in Columbus get a chance to have a transcendent experience today. And if you want to know more about transcendence and its effects on the teenage brain, check out this article:

Peace and health,
