  • "The most important aspect of a meditative practice is mindfulness, a concept which can be broken down into two distinct subcomponents."

"In order overcome this and document meditation as whole, psychonautwiki is simply going to devise a simple, open source, usable technique and set of information to define a generalized meditation methodology and its different components."

  • this sounds terrible.... don't do this... you shouldn't be adding the word "psychonautwiki"
  • "In order to overcome this and document meditation as a whole, a simple and usable open source technique and a set of information have been devised to define a generalized meditation methodology and its different components."

"This is with the belief that it will be equal or greater in efficiency within the way its regular practice induces specific subjective effects."

  • ok you've already used the word "this" for every single sentence in this paragraph so think of something new now. and you need to make clear what "it" is.

This is repeated with the intention of quietening ones mind.

  • quietening 11111111111111s
  • im pretty sure the only time you'll ever use ones without an apostrophe is if you are detailing with actual number ones.
  • one's mind... always add apostrophe onto "ones"

The average human being which attemptes to quieten their thoughts will notice that their inner monologue will autonomously interject and distract one from the task at hand in a fashion which seems entirely uncontrollable.

  • too much to put here

"It has been clinically demonstrated that those who begin 30 minutes of mindfulness mediation practice a day demonstrate detectable changes within their brain structure and report a number of positive effects to their overall well-being. (ref:http://phys.org/news/2011-01-mindfulness-meditation-brain-weeks.html) This demonstrates that even short-term periods of regular meditation have a clinically significant and measurable therapeutic effect on a neurological level. It is therefore logical to suppose based upon both the reports of those who retain meditation routines for longer periods of time and the simple logic that these effects continue to increase in intensity with persistent, regular and extended practice."

  • first sentence: needs a time frame. 8 weeks? i have no idea, i didnt read the study
  • last sentence doesn't make sense at all, needs to be rewritten

  • you can't use a comma when it's just two things. you have to use a conjunction like "and" or "or"
  • would be "sitting and standing to walking"
  • orrrrr "sitting, standing or walking"

"This has been done so done so to avoid the cultural, mythological and religious connotations which meditation is usually associated with."

  • how does this even happen

"This generalized methodology can be broken down into a three simple components which are listed below."

  • you have to define what these things are because it is not obvious at all.
