Mind & Life Summer Research Institute: Mapping the Mind

Mind and Life Summer By Application

Mind and Life Summer Research Institute (MLSRI) is a seven-day program to advance collaborative research among scientists, contemplative scholars, other humanities scholars, and contemplative practitioners, based on a process of inquiry and dialogue. With this unique program, we are not only nurturing a new generation of scientists interested in exploring the influence of contemplative practice and meditation on the mind, but are also fostering the development of new fields of research collectively referred to as the "contemplative sciences." This year's institute will be held June 15-21, 2013 and will be located at the Garrison Institute in Garrison, New York, 50 miles north of New York City in the Hudson River Valley.
The 2013 MLSRI will be devoted to the theme of "Mapping the Mind." Drawing on research in neuroscience, basic psychological science, clinical psychology, philosophy, and contemplative studies, this year's MLSRI will focus on the effort to develop comprehensive maps of the mind and its potential for development and transformation. The program will feature many eminent scholars, including Michel Bitbol, PhD, Melanie Boly, Richard J. Davidson, PhD, Jake Davis, John D. Dunne, PhD, Roshi Joan Halifax, PhD, Maria Heim, PhD, Thupten Jinpa, PhD, Alfred Kaszniak, PhD, John Makransky, PhD, Sara McClintock, PhD, John Peacock, PhD, Luiz Pessoa, PhD, Claire Petitmengin, PhD, Tsoknyi Rinpoche, Datherine Shaddix, MA, Robert Sharf, PhD, Evan Thompson, PhD, Rebecca Todd, PhD and Arthur Zajonc, PhD.
