Settling the Mind in its Natural State: Self-Knowing and Observing the Mind Heal Itself

B. Alan Wallace, 30 Apr 2010

This morning we had a short but sweet introduction on the mind’s capacity to heal itself and how the traditional sciences can cooperate with the contemplative science, come together, and share their insights. Alan also talks about how sometimes support from the psychopharmaceutical, clinical psychology, and psychiatry branches can be a huge support for contemplative practice. So this morning was about cooperation and synergy!

Afterwards we have a 24 minute session of settling the mind and then we wrapped it up on time!
