VIRTUAL: How to Find More Psychological Stability in an Unstable Time- the Role of Meditation

Lecture on Meditation: “We all live under pressure to meld our thoughts into those of larger groups: political, identity, social media, and this can alienate us from our sense of ourselves. At the same time we get isolated in front of our screens. Meditation is a traditional way of enhancing our autonomy and stability, and of stimulating generous and charitable attitudes. It links us to wisdom of the ancients and to contemporary neuroscience.”
