Episode 108: Joseph Goldstein on The Science of Insight
Joseph Goldstein--one of the primary figures
in the development of the Insight Meditation movement--finishes up his
conversation with us by sharing his perspective on the recent
cross-pollunation of the Buddhist meditation with scientific
investigation. He shares some of the recent studies that he has
contributed to--including an in-depth study at the Insight Meditation
Society--and also discusses a few research possibilities that he has
recommended to scientists. Finally he shares an interesting idea he
had for creating a "virtual bardo machine."
This is part 2 of a two-part series. Listen to part 1, Joseph Goldstein on the Benefits of Long Term Practice.
