Science of Enlightenment Book Preview -- What is Meditation? What is Mindfulness? What's the Difference?
Friday evening March 24th
Unified Mindfulness practices from Shinzen Young are given in the style of vipassana meditation, with themes from Zen, Vajrayana and Taoism. There is a strong emphasis on the fusion of ancient wisdom with science. Shinzen draws fresh, inspiring metaphors from science and math, and loves to compare mystical traditions. His methods are inclusive and enhancing of most other awareness practices. They focus on precise moment-to-moment awareness of sensory experience. Shinzen encourages students to use flexible attention to continually expand mindfulness through our life.
Shinzen's approach helps explore the common ground of awareness training in all the major Buddhist schools and the world's wisdom traditions, such as Judaism, Islam, Christianity and Shamanism. His ULTRA framework -- the Universal Library for Training Awareness -- is detailed and inspiring, comprehensive and universal, personally empowering.
