Course Description

The past decade has seen an explosion of interest across the United States in something called “mindfulness meditation.” Its benefits are said to be myriad, and it is said somehow to be related to a Buddhist tradition of meditation that stretches back thousands of years. What is this contemporary practice of “mindfulness”? What is it said to be good for? What is contributing to its current popularity? And what is the relation between it and the various forms of meditative practice that Buddhists have historically championed? This class provides students with opportunities to think through these questions and more.
