Note: This course will meet in 4129 Undergrad Science Building. This course is pass/fail ONE credit course. In this class, we will specifically explore scientific inquiry into the nature of the mind during meditation. We will touch upon modern brain neuroimaging findings of experienced meditators and novices that undergo training. We will examine the known benefits of meditation for pain, depression, anxiety, and stress using data from human clinical trials. Finally, we will explore our own mental processes through meditation and journaling practices. At the end of this class, students will walk away with a greater scientific understanding of meditation, as well as learn the fundamentals of a personal contemplative meditative practice that can be applied to enhance beneficial, and prune afflictive, mental states.
