Participants remain silent for eight days, meditate for more than 10 hours a day, eat vegan meals, and follow a regular sleep schedule.
Blood samples from participants were collected five to eight weeks in advance, then just before and after the retreat, as well as three months later. The genomic analysis ultimately found several immune-related and other cellular pathways were altered after the meditation. Strikingly, they found increased post-retreat activity in 220 genes directly related to the immune response.
Furthermore, the researchers reported that multiple genes related to the immune system were activated dramatically when you do meditation.
