There are one million new meditators in America every year. And this is just the beginning: as the neuroscientific data showing how meditation changes the brain becomes more widely known, contemplative practice is set to explode. But what is meditation, really, and how does it work? What are some of the mind-blowing, heart-opening experiences that arise as part of the serious contemplative path?

Based on his new book, Evolving Dharma: Meditation, Buddhism, and the Next Generation of Enlightenment, Jay will answer these questions and the ones you bring as well.  The talk will be followed by a short meditation sitting with instruction.
