Program Description

Join internationally renowned scholar and author B. Alan Wallace, PhD, for a dynamic immersion exploring the cultivation of exceptional levels of mental health and well-being.

An innovative thinker and practitioner of Buddhism since 1970, Dr. Wallace’s expertise lies in the integration of Buddhist contemplative practices with Western science to advance our understanding of the mind.

This week, you will experience a multifaceted workshop deeply rooted in Buddhist theory and practice. You will gain powerful perspectives and skills for creating meaningful aspirations; develop an inner sense of ease, stillness, and clarity; and enhance your emotional intelligence, maturity, and resilience.

Through a combination of enlightening lectures and teachings, a variety of meditation practices, reflection, and group discussions, you will learn:

  • How to cultivate the four kinds of mental balance: conative, attentional, cognitive, and emotional
  • Meditative practices for balance, clarity, and inspiration
  • Wisdom from multiple traditions and sages, including Socrates, Thomas Aquinas, and William James.

Dr. Wallace, ordained as a Tibetan Buddhist monk by the Dalai Lama, is one of the most prolific writers and translators of Tibetan Buddhism in the West and brings deep experience and applied skills to his teaching.

Through an integrated combination of theory and meditative practices, you will take home a conceptual understanding of timeless wisdom, as well as your own new, experiential insight.
