1º Congreso Ciencias Contemplativas
4 noviembre, 2021 - 5 noviembre, 2021
Join the First Congress on Contemplative Sciences created by the Chair World Happiness Foundation of Contemplative Sciences at the University of Zaragoza in Spain.
Contemplative science poses as the bridge between the empirical study of the science of consciousness and its subjective analysis through contemplation. This field of research focuses on the changes within the human mind and body as a result of contemplative practices, such as yoga, mindfulness-based meditation, or tai chi.
Contemplative science is interdisciplinary and aims to clarify such mind/brain/body changes across cognitive, behavioral, emotional, and perceptual domains. These focus on relating such changes to neurobiology and first-person experience.
Contemplative sciences also include an investigation into fundamental principles of our well-being, including a sense of meaning and purpose, ways of knowing and experiencing the world, altruistic types of motivation, kindness, love, gratitude, compassion, happiness, forgiveness, and philosophical understanding of ourselves, wisdom, and the nature of suffering. Additionally, contemplative sciences may also involve investigation into social justice, conflict, and peace for humanity.
