Contemplative Summer Institute – 2015

By | May 29, 2015

Meditation, mindfulness and the judging mind

Hello all!

I am very happy to share some exciting news. We just completed the first, and most important stage of planning for a very promising event: our first Contemplative Summer Institute – or CSI.

Serving on the Board of Directors of the new International Association Consciousness – Mindfulness – Compassion, I am in charge of developing the educational programme. This first CSI was planned with the idea of bringing together a mixed bunch of people including health care professionals, students, meditators, meditation teachers and scientists to approach a very central topic: the judging mind:

What is the nature of judgement, of discernment and discrimination? States of mindfulness are said to be non-judging, but how does this fit with an ethical way of life? How do we distinguish between beneficial and harmful actions?

For this CSI we will bring together outstanding experts from a wide range of meditation tradition, therapists and scientists who will share their view on judgment and discernment. And all this will take place in one of the most beautiful locations – the retreat and study centre Karma Guen in the mountains of Andalucia, in the south of Spain.

Today we launched the application process and if you are interested you should be fast as the application window closes on 21 June.
