Increasingly, dharma and its distillations are being incorporated in diverse spheres of secular life: psychology, medicine and education. Meditative practices and Buddhist psychology are being subjected to scientific interrogation. What are the implications of this encounter? In what ways will mindfulness and science converge or collide? Will scientific research inform how we practice? During this morning, we’ll consider the place of empiricism in dharma, the ways that Buddhist psychology is influencing psychotherapy, and the mechanisms through which mindfulness may confer it’s benefits. Lastly, we’ll consider how this work may inform conceptualizations of dharma in the future.
