More Info / Registration


The last twenty years have witnessed a revolution in the West’s embrace of meditation. Mindfulness is now everywhere: synagogues, churches, schools, hospitals, prisons, even the U.S. Marines. Mindfulness practice is certainly part of spiritual life. 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 Michaelson will explain and contextualize some of this new information, changing everything you thought you knew about the brain, meditation, spirituality, and the meaning of happiness.
