Meditation, Mindfulness and the Judging Mind

By | June 28, 2015

Places are still available at the Contemplative Summer Institute on Meditation, Mindfulness and the Judging Mind

As main organiser I thought it would be good to let you know that it is still possible to participate in this exciting event.

If you are interested in the role of judging (and non-judging) within the context of meditation, mindfulness, perception and psychotherapy you should not miss this event. Take part in exchange and discussion with leading experts from a variety of meditation traditions (Zen Buddhism, Theravada/Vipassana Buddhism, Vajrayana/Diamond Way Buddhism), from different therapeutic approaches and from several scientific disciplines.

Here just a few questions that will be explored:

  • 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?
  • How are discrimination and judgement approached in therapeutic practice?
  • What are contemplative views on the discriminating mind?
  • How do psychologists and neuroscientists view, study and understand judgement?

And if you are still not convinced, have a look at the breathtaking views you can expect at the Karma Guen Retreat Centre, where the CSI will take place.
