Meditation research presents an extensive research branch for its own and it would be presumptuous to try to give an overview of its results here. Instead, in the following bibliographies are listed that allow interested ones to inform themselves about the current stateof the art.
- Engel, K. (1997). Meditation Vol. I: History and Present Time. Frankfurt: Lang.
- Engel, K. (1997). Meditation Vol. II: Empirical Research and Theory. Frankfurt: Lang.
- Murphy, M. & Donovan, S. (1997). The physical and psychological effects of meditation. A review of contemporaryresearch with a comprehensive bibliography 1931-1996. Sausalito: Institute of Noetic Sciences. Online available.
An overview of current meditation research can be obtained by querying the Pubmed database using the serch term „meditation“.
