Description: 

The numerous meditative practices described in the Buddha's teachings during the historical period (Pali canon) and in the subsequent Mahayana and Vajrayana schools are considered essential to the attainment of optimal mental health and well-being. All of these approaches to meditation invite the meditator to work with every aspect of their mind. In this course the major meditative practices will be interpreted within the context of current models of psychological transformation and transcendence. In addition, a theoretical understanding of the manner in which meditation produces its benefits within modern psychological theories will also be described emphasizing affinities with psychoanalysis, Jungian analytic psychology, cognitive science, cognitive-behavioral psychology and positive psychology.
