Stephan A. Schwartz is a Distinguished Consulting Faculty of Saybrook University. He is the columnist for the journal Explore, and editor of the daily web publication in both of which he covers trends that are affecting the future. His other academic and research appointments include: Senior Fellow for Brain, Mind and Healing of the Samueli Institute; founder and Research Director of the Mobius laboratory. Government appointments include Special Assistant for Research and Analysis to the Chief of Naval Operations. Schwartz was the principal researcher studying the use of Remote Viewing in archaeology. Using Remote Viewing he discovered Cleopatra’s Palace, Marc Antony’s Timonium, ruins of the Lighthouse of Pharos, and sunken ships along the California coast, and in the Bahamas. He is the author of more than 130 technical reports and papers. He has written The Secret Vaults of Time, The Alexandria Project, Mind Rover, Opening to the Infinite, and The 8 Laws of Change.

In this 2017 video, he maintains that meditation is the single best practice from which any person can derive benefit. He notes that there are now over a thousand scientific papers describing both the mental and biological benefits of meditation. He claims that, while almost all religious cultures offer some sort of meditative practice, it is possible to understand meditation entirely apart from a religious context. He provides specific instructions for meditation based on his own experience of over fifty years. He concludes with a discussion of the sociological benefits of meditation.

Edited subtitles for this video are available in Russian, Portuguese, Italian, German, French, and Spanish.
