Note: His Holiness the Dalai Lama will not participate in this event.
This short-course is offered to accompany the Compassion Meditation Conference for those looking for a deeper exploration (or primer) prior to and after the event.
Can science and religion engage productively? Can two diverse cultures integrate and enhance each other, rather than one engulfing the other? The Dalai Lama and Emory are developing models to actively explore these questions, experimenting in the lab, in the clinic, and in education. What is the history and thinking behind this collaboration-writ large between 'East' and 'West', and more specifically between Tibetan Buddhism and Emory? Investigate these questions before, during, and after the Dalai Lama's Emory visit with this Tibetan Buddhist monk/professor and an American scientist/teacher. Tuition includes textbooks and ticket for Compassion Meditation: Mapping Current Research and Charting Future Directions with His Holiness the Dalai Lama. No discounts.
Instructors: Arri Eisen, PhD, Professor of Pedagogy in Biology and the Institute for Liberal Arts, and Geshe Lobsang Negi,Ph.D., Senior Lecturer, Department of Religion
