Rich with lucid instructions and practical insights, Mind Science dispels the metaphysical haze that all too often surrounds the subject of meditation. Based on a lively workshop with fellow scientists, Charles Tart shows how the pragmatic and scientifically-inclined among us can bring mindfulness into everyday life without religious baggage -- while clearly explaining its many spiritual and health benefits.
These highly interactive and often witty sessions in front of a skeptical audience anticipate the questions that any practical person might have about meditative mindfulness. If you’ve been looking for a clear teaching on how and why to meditate that is free of sectarian involvement, this is the book for you.
Mind Science is based on a workshop at the country’s leading scientific conference on the study of consciousness, held bi-annually at the University of Arizona at Tucson. Tart’s jovial and wide-ranging style makes Mind Science suitable reading for intelligent lay people with a practical and scientific inclination, as well as the academically- and scientifically-trained students of consciousness and related fields. Mind Science is, in fact, the only current book on meditation by an author who is
also a well-respected scientist.
