Spirituality Mind Body Institute
The Spirituality Mind Body Institute supports training and research for the development of psychotherapists, healers, scholars and activitists. Graduate students build knowledge of research supporting spiritual and mind-body practices as well as hands on clinical training. Research within the Institute examines the direct effects of spirituality on thriving in youth, to include investigation at multiple levels of analyses (clinical, MRI, genotyping) on spirituality as protective against mental illness and as a source of resilience in building respectful relationships and personal meaning and purpose. Generous funding for the Spirituality Mind Body Institute comes from corporate and family foundations.

Vipassana Meditation: Psychology, Science, and Way of Life
A Lecture and Conversation with Paul R. Fleischman, M.D.
When: Tuesday , November 12, 6-7:30 pm
Where: Milbank Chapel
RSVP Here: http://vipassanafleischman.eventbrite.com/
Vipassana Meditation is based upon the teachings of the Buddha, and has been revived as a secular form of psychological development. It raises into consciousness the full contents of the mind, and reorganizes thoughts and feelings in keeping with new fundamental insights about one's self and all of nature. These fundamental insights, in turn, are compatible with the scientific worldview that understands all things to be impermanent, changing aggregates that follow universal laws. Vipassana practice guides its practitioners towards a life of harmony, peace, and moral discernment.
