Science & Buddhism

On Nov 25, at 2 pm, we will discuss Altered Traits, and States, the science of  the behavioral, psychological and neurological changes resulting from meditation-related practices, and highlighting recent books including:

  1. Daniel Goleman and Richard Davidson,  Altered Traits: Science Reveals How Meditation Changes Your Mind, Brain, and Body, the science of what meditation can really do for us,

  2. Michael Pollan, How to Change Your Mind: What the New Science of Psychedelics Teaches Us About Consciousness, Dying, Addiction, Depression, and Transcendence, May 15, 2018.

More information

As always, the discussion will be quite open and informal with all invited to participate.

Sunday Program: We also invite you to join us that Sunday morning for our 10 am Sunday Program, Dharma Talk, and social lunch, ahead of our 2 pm Science & Buddhism session.
