09 May The nature and potentials of consciousness
At the beginning of the XNUMXst century, humanity is poised for a revolution in our understanding of consciousness, as the first-person modes of inquiry from the world's contemplative traditions are integrated with the third-person methods of modern science. The Santa Barbara Institute for Consciousness Studies is dedicated to deepening this interdisciplinary and cross-cultural investigation of the nature and potentials of consciousness and extending its benefits to the general public.
The institute's research emphasizes integrating scientific approaches with contemplative methods adhering to equally high standards, radically expanding the study of the mind to explore its potentials more fully than ever before. Her practice and education focus is on cultivating genuine and flourishing human happiness through exceptional mental health and balance, bringing the physical and psychological benefits of awareness training to ever-wider segments of the population and all areas of life.
