The Scientific Exploration of Inner Well-being
With Cortland Dahl, Ph.D.
Co-sponsored by Tergar Chicago,
The Center for Healthy Minds/University of Wisconsin,
And Northwestern Religious and Spiritual Life
Evanston, Illinois, USA
For thousands of years, meditation and other practices that train the mind have been used in the world’s philosophical, spiritual, and humanistic traditions to cultivate mental well-being. In the present day, a remarkable collaboration between some of the world’s leading neuroscientists and advanced meditators is beginning to shed new light on these ancient practices. In this evening dialogue, Dr. Cortland Dahl will explore recent scientific findings that demonstrate how meditation can help us train the mind and rewire the brain to experience mindfulness, compassion, and insight.
This event is open to all.
Cortland Dahl has practiced meditation for twenty-five years and has studied Buddhism around the world, including eight years spent living in Tibetan refugee settlements in India and Nepal. He holds a Ph.D. in the Mind, Brain, and Contemplative Science from the University of Wisconsin and an M.A. in Buddhist Studies from Naropa University. Currently, Cortland serves as Chairman and Co-Executive Director of Tergar International and as Research Scientist and Chief Contemplative Officer at UW-Madison’s Center for Healthy Minds. As an author and translator, he has published numerous scientific articles and books on Buddhist practice. Read more…
