Talks from the Buddhism and Modernity Symposium
Submitted by Lisa Dale Miller MFT on June 22, 2015 - 6:33am
On June 7, 2015, a select group of presenters from the Mindfulness and Compassion Conference at SFSU convened at the Mangalam Research Center in Berkeley to discuss Buddhism and Modernity. All three panels which featured wonderful commentary on the problematic of modern mindfulness from academics and researchers working in the fields of philosophy, neuroscience and the social sciences. As the only clinician I chose to speak on transcendent wisdom and psychotherapy. Videos of the three panels are posted at: https://effortlessmindfulness.wordpress.com/2015/06/19/talks-from-the-bu...
