Buddhist Meditation and the Modern World introduces students to: (1) the history of Buddhist contemplative traditions in India and Tibet (meditation, yoga, mindfulness, visualization, etc.); (2) innovations in scientific research on understanding such contemplative practices; (3) recent adaptations of such practices in multiple professional and personal areas; and (4) the practices themselves through brief, secular, contemplative exercises. The course will be co-taught by David Germano and Kurtis Schaeffer, and will include extensive contributions from scientists, people involved with integrating in practice and Tibetan Buddhist teachers.
