Modern Science Meets Ancient Wisdom

In the 21st century, modern brain science and ancient contemplative wisdom are illuminating each other. Besides being fascinating in its own right, this cross-fertilization and growing integration spotlights increasingly effective ways for using your mind to change your brain to benefit your whole being – and those you touch.

The Wellspring Institute for Neuroscience and Contemplative Wisdom, of which I am a Founding member, offers a growing body of information about the neuroscience of psychological well-being and spiritual growth.

Here you will find Key Scientific Papers on:

  • Mindfulness & Meditation
  • Positive Psychology
