Evolving Dharma: Understanding the Meditation Revolution | Brookline, MA

at Temple Beth Zion
1566 Beacon Street
Brookline, MA

The last twenty years have witnessed a revolution in the West’s embrace of meditation. Mindfulness is now everywhere: schools, hospitals, prisons, even the U.S. Marines. But the most radical changes are yet to come. With new scientific data showing how meditation changes the brain, contemplative practice is set to explode. Based on his new book, Evolving Dharma: Meditation, Buddhism, and the Next Generation of Enlightenment, Jay will talk about our unique historical moment, in which everything we know about the mind and the brain is shifting.
