Professor Collins’ Fourth Lecture: “Buddhist Practices of Self: Spiritual Exercises”
December 2nd, 2016
To understand forms of askesis, Practices of Self, we need to look from both internal and external pespectives. That is, there are forms of dress (uniforms) as well as of ‘introspection.’ The lectures will conclude with a brief history of the rise of Insight meditation (vipassana) and Mindfulness (sati), in Buddhism and in contemporary psychotherapy.
