Discussion Group: Science & Buddhism

  • Jikoji Zen Center 12100 Skyline Blvd Los Gatos, CA, 95033 United States

Science and Buddhism are vital to our modern world’s future, and can be mutually supportive as recently expressed in Science at the Crossroads by the Dalai Lama. Starting from where we are, meetings survey the scientific frontier. From philosophy and mathematics to biology, psychology, and neuroscience, these discussions find intersections in their connection to Buddhist perspectives.   Please join us!

The discussion group meets on the last Sunday of each month from 2 to 4 pm. Everyone is welcome, for all or part.

The group first selects a moderator and recognizes "experts" or practitioners within Buddhism or Therapies who are present. They then introduces the topic, followed by questions and moderated open discussion.

Each meeting concludes with a selection of the following month's topic. An optional short period of zazen and a potluck or leftovers supper may follow.
