Tergar Community has announced that Dan Goleman, author of Emotional Intelligence, will be moderating the dialogue between His Holiness the Karmapa, Richard Davidson and Sona Dimidjian at the University of Wisconsin-Madison on April 27.
In under an hour, the seats set aside for the general public for that dialogue have all been issued. The venue seats 800. We are working hard to arrange a webcast so no one is left out.
The talk is entitled “The Heart, the Brain, and Society: Buddhist and Scientific Perspectives
On the Cultivation of Well-being” and includes a dialogue with Richard Davidson and Sona Dimidjian.
The following description comes from the website of Tergar- which is co-hosting the events in Madison:
“Is well-being a skill that we can learn, in the same way that we can train our bodies to be healthier and more resilient? If so, how can we build communities that foster wisdom and compassion, rather than competition and conflict? These questions have prompted a groundbreaking dialogue between some of the world’s leading scientists and spiritual leaders.
“Please join us for a rare opportunity to spend the evening with three remarkable individuals who are at the center of this dialogue. His Holiness the 17th Karmapa is the head of one of Tibet’s four main Buddhist lineages and is at the forefront of efforts to raise awareness of gender equality and environmental sustainability in traditional Buddhist communities. Dr. Richard Davidson is a renowned neuroscientist who has pioneered the rigorous scientific study of emotion and meditation. Dr. Sona Dimidjian is at the forefront of efforts to understand women’s mental health issues, and in particular how mindfulness may be used to alleviate depression during and after pregnancy.”
