8:16 am
psychologically. >> the exciting thing is we've been able to show meditation turns genes on and off. tie gee can turn things on and on. if you have cardiovascular disease, we can make changes in increasing your long-term health. >> russell, when i told people you're coming on, they said, is he coming on to talk about music? i said, no, about meditation. they said, russell simmons meditates? i think it's great. you said back in the day success was a lot of drugs, parties, sleeping with a lot of women. how do you go from that to medication is stillness. >> all of us want to be still and see miracles. the whole world is so full of
8:17 am
beautiful miracles and only presence provides that gateway. we meditate so we can stop the fluctuation of the mind when the mind is still -- we get to see all the beauty. we get sickness and sadness. >> what does it do for you? >> for me specifically it turns the noise down. you know, we have hundreds of thoughts running through our mind. as we lessen the number of thoughts, the mindsetles, we become happier people. there is no happenness in the future or the past. there is no creativity. only in the presence. and meditation is the greatest tool to promote presence. >> there's creativity in the stillness. what's happening again, to norah's question, what's happening to our brain and mind as we meditate? >> as we meditate it does create the relaxation response. it's the response opposite to the stress response, you know, the flight or fight response
8:18 am
where you get all revved up. >> this is the contra to that. >> the solution to that in many ways. you use lots of different techniques and that in the long term yields physiological bern fits. >> russell, what's fascinating to me and why we should do on the show about this is the number of successful people who meditation whether it's oprah, jerry seinfeld, george lucas, russell simmons. so many people have tried it. why do you think that is? >> again, when you operate from a calm space, you're able to make good decisions. the nervous system is always -- always affected by your thought process. when the nervous system is calm, you have a greater brain functionality. >> don't you think every creative thought is when you meditate? >> you meditate in all forms. all forms of meditation. but the seconds of stillness,'ve
8:19 am
if you listen to music, you can get into musical. i had the experience of a car accident. the world is moving at that speed, slow motion, is the way the world moved. but with the fluctuation of the mind, you miss all that. >> would jts you say though -- go ahead, charlie. >> what's trance dental meditation? >> that's abroad. we use it with kids. you use a mantra. you repeat the mantra to yourself. if you repeat that mantra, maybe the mind is drawn to the mantra and the noise settles. the nervous system always calms when you sit. and when you sit if you're patient and you repeat a mantra, you will slip into a meditative state. there's no choice, everyone can.
8:20 am
>> it still scares a lot of people. what do you say to show them this is very important? >> you know, i'm a doctor so i often tell people -- give recommendations like you should diet, be on a better diet, exercise. it's the same thing ever we have science that shows it's beneficial to people. it's a prescription like any other. we also like to say it doesn't matter what kind of meditation you can use. what's important is that you guess the kind of practice that fits for you add a person. >> i want to learn how do it. thank you dr. john denninger and russell simmons. thousands of people captured life in bold new was. look at these pivots. first on "cbs this morning," we're going to reveal it
