“If we grasp at a problem, it only becomes more intense. We all have problems, but a lot of mental suffering can be prevented by using particular meditation techniques.” – Geshe Tenzin Namdak
In this first ‘Meet the Speaker’ Interview for Science & Wisdom Live, Scott Snibbe and Geshe Tenzin Namdak discuss how meditation shapes our brain through neuroplasticity, helping us deal with negative emotions. They also explore the common ground between quantum physics and Buddhist philosophy and mind-science, referring to Bohm’s theory of implicate and explicate order and the Buddhist view of ultimate reality. Finally, they discuss how the dialogue between science and contemplative traditions can help us address the great challenges of our society.
On the 11th of November, Geshe Namdak will join Dr. Elena Antonova, Father Laurence Freeman and Dr. Wendy Hasenkamp, to discuss how scientific research and meditation techniques can help us to deal with destructive emotions in these challenging times. Please join this Science & Wisdom Live dialogue on Zoom on the 11th of November, at 7 pm GMT (London time).
