Just to say I found Krista's summary of Arthur Zajonc's interview very interesting, particularly his words about how a meditative letting go stance seemed to alleviate the Parkinson's tremor in his hand. And then the article continues to use hand imagery as we use it, one the one hand, & on the other hand.

I wonder IF deep meditative states alleviate tremors and if so, why. I also do know personally that I do live in a meditative state that is hard to describe but this allows for reflection without interfering thought, no doubt similar to that described by yogis and others. This is hard to describe, a state of mind, but it is different and I think it is a kind of emptying which allows for deepening spiritual perception.

Many seek monastic type retreats and the spiritual healing of slowing down and spending contemplative time with Nature.
