Buddhadharma : Summer 2006
A Joint Project with the Santa Barbara Institute for Consciousness Studies, University of California-Davis & Shambhala Mountain Center Help us explore the human potential for genuine happiness and well-being by joining one of the most extensive studies on the long-term benefits of meditation practice. We invite you to participate in this extensive group meditation retreat study hosted by Shambhala Mountain, which will take place in 2007. Over a three-month period, Dr. B. Alan Wallace will guide study participants in various forms of shamatha practice drawn from the Theravada and Mahayana Buddhist traditions. Instruction will also be offered on the cultivation of the Four Immeasurables (lovingkindness, compassion, empathetic joy and equanimity), which will be practiced between shamatha sessions. Participants will be collaborating with a team of neuroscientists and psychologists. Two three-month retreats will be offered, with participants randomly assigned to the first or second retreat. During the first retreat, participants assigned to the second retreat will be brought to Shambhala Mountain at the project’s expense to be tested as part of a “control group.” The retreats will begin in February and September 2007 respectively. If applicants have not already completed a one-week shamatha retreat with Dr. Wallace, they are asked to do so at one of the following locations: June 25 - July 2: Santa Barbara Institute, CA July 22 - 29: Shambhala Mountain Center, CO September 5 - 12: Menla Mountain Retreat, NY See our web site below for details. “I believe this research project has the potential to be of significant benefit for advancing scientific understanding of the effects of meditation on attention and emotional regulation.” – His Holiness the Dalai Lama Meditate to Advance Science Be a part of this groundbreaking neuroscience research project exploring the relationship between meditation and well-being.
