BUDDHISM – MEDITATION – YOGA – RETREAT
IN THE COLORADO ROCKIES
A JOINT PROJECT WITH THE SANTA BARBARA INSTITUTE FOR CONSCIOUSNESS, UNIVERSITY OF CALIFORNIA-DAVIS & SHAMBHALA MOUNTAIN CENTER
“I am delighted at the progress being made in developing the Shamatha Project, a scientific study designed to examine the effects of long-term, intensive practice of shamatha together with the four immeasurable qualities of loving-kindness, compassion, empathetic joy and equanimity. I believe this research project has the potential to be of significant benefit for advancing scientific understanding of the effects of meditation on attention and emotional regulation, as well as in showing that traditional Buddhist meditative practices can be extremely effective in alleviating the inner causes of suffering and bringing forth the potentials of human consciousness in today's world.”
