Buddhism and Science: Differing Technologies for Mental Health
What can 2,500 years of striving for Buddhist enlightenment tell us about mental health in the 21st century? Is there a place for science in the path to enlightenment and a place for Buddhist views in the scientific attempt to understand the mind? Buddhism and well-being expert, Corey Jackson, will explore answers to these questions. He’ll also treat why Buddhists still get angry, why psychology can’t cure anxiety or depression, and how to strive for long-term mental health while still reaping short-term rewards.
