This week, Lerab Ling will host the 3rd International Forum on Buddhism and Medicine.
International leading experts will come together to present the latest scientific research into the therapeutic benefits of meditation, as well as results from the application of meditation in a number of different clinical settings. The Buddhist approach to meditation will also be shared, and there will be guided meditation sessions.
The topic of the conference: Meditation and Health, has generated lots of interest and more than 650 participants are expected.
Speakers include Jon Kabat-Zinn, Frédéric Rosenfeld, Clifford Saron, Erika Rosenberg and Cathy Blanc. Sogyal Rinpoche and Jetsün Khandro Rinpoche will present meditation in the Tibetan Buddhist tradition.
