DHFP: A Balanced Introduction to Mindfulness

  • Thursday, October 6, 2022
  • 5:00 PM- 6:00 PM
  • Zoom
The past few decades have seen the emergence of the “Mindfulness Revolution” in mainstream American popular culture. Hospitals, prisons, daycare centers, college campuses … mindfulness meditation is seemingly everywhere these days. In fact, since the inception of Buddhism nearly 2500 years ago, Buddhists have understood various facets of their tradition to be sources of health and healing. But how established are the links between meditation and physical health? Dr. Salguero will give an overview of the history, contemporary practice, and academic study of mindfulness meditation practice. He will situate the contemporary focus on the health benefits of meditation within the global history of Buddhism and medicine, and will outline the many rich and complex Buddhist approaches to healing that have been (and still are) used globally, and will suggest directions for further historical and clinical research beyond meditation.

Schreyer Scholar Marissa Works

Schreyer helps students navigate life on campus and beyond with extremely important opportunities such as priority scheduling, smaller and more personal class sizes, and grant/scholarship funding. I was able to take on the internship of my dreams at the Kennedy Center because of Schreyer's connections and financial support.
