Yesterday Pema Chodron gave us great insight into how meditation can help us see loneliness for what it is, simply a feeling, not one we need to run from.  Today I take a more clinical approach to meditation and loneliness as I read an article about the ways that meditation alleviates the feelings of isolation by changing the brain.  Let's talk about it.
