About

This program offers students the opportunity to join the emerging dialogue between the Tibetan Buddhist tradition of the Inner science of the mind and the western tradition of science of the External world. Participants on this program engage in an exciting experiment in cross-cultural collaboration that has the potential to lead to breakthroughs in a variety of fields. Students will have the opportunity to learn from some of the best teachers in the western and Tibetan traditions, while actively engaging in dialogue with Tibetan monks and nuns who will be studying neuroscience, biology, and physics in the month-long Emory-Tibet Science Initiative.  For the first time in 2014, the program will take place half in Karnataka, India, at Drepung Loseling Monastery, and half in Dharamsala, the head of the Tibetan exile community in India.  No prior knowledge of Tibetan or these subjects is required.
