"Meditation and social activism: opposites or complements?"
Location: Palamountain Hall: Emerson Auditorium
Time: 7:00 PM - 8:00 PM
Speaker: Prof. Thomas Coburn, President Emeritus, Naropa University
Dr. Coburn, now a Visiting Scholar at Brown University, will explore the relation of meditation traditions to movements for social justice.
He asks, "How might meditation/contemplation enable us to recapture an enlarged view of human nature, one that has been in remission since Descartes. What implications are there here for both the substance and the goal of liberal education? This will involve a reappraisal of mystical experience, from seeing it as New Age pathology to its promise as prophetic vision."Sponsor:
