Mindfulness does not mean just being present in the here and now, but using presence of mind to stop the wheel of survival and start thriving in awareness, kindness, and freedom.This first class of the Nalanda Institute Four Year Program in Sustainable Happiness covers the foundations of contemplative self-healing in the Buddhist tradition: the healing insights of Buddha’s four noble truths; the four applications of mindfulness practice; and the life-strategies of loving-kindness, right livelihood, and non-violent social activism. It unpacks these foundations in terms of current breakthroughs in the neuroscience of stress and trauma, as well as the revolutionary findings of neuroplasticity and the transformative brain effects of meditation. Weaving ancient wisdom and modern science together, it focuses on how to build a contemplative life in the world, comparing the Buddha’s eightfold path with the eight limbed path of yoga, as well as modern paths like psychotherapy, recovery, and creativity.
