2010 Mind & Life Summer Research Institute – Human Development, Education and Contemplative Practice
The 2010 Mind & Life Summer Research Institute will focus on bridging the work in contemplative science and practice with the work in the developmental sciences, including developmental neuroscience, to provide a scientific foundation from which we can investigate the feasibility, effectiveness and potential challenges of attempting to introduce secularized versions of contemplative practices into public educational settings.

The purpose of the 2010 Mind & Life Summer Research Institute is to advance collaborative research among developmental scientists, neuroscientists, and educational researchers and practitioners based on a process of inquiry, dialogue, and in some cases, collaboration, with Buddhist contemplative practitioners and scholars and those in other contemplative traditions. The long-term objective of the Mind & Life Summer Research Institute 2010 is to advance the training of a new generation of developmental scientists, cognitive/affective neuroscientists, applied/clinical researchers, and contemplative scholar/practitioners interested in exploring the potential influences of contemplative practices in educational contexts on mind, behavior, brain function, learning and health of children and youth and those who care for them.
