ISBN: 9781590300107

The best-selling author of Emotional Intelligence presents a spiritual-scientific dialogue between Buddhist teachers and Western psychologists, physicians, and scientists on the mind’s uncanny ability to heal the body. Can the mind heal the body? The Buddhist tradition says yes — and now that many Western scientists are beginning to agree, these discussions between the Dalai Lama and a group of prominent physicians, psychologists, and meditation teachers could not be more timely. This book is a record of the third Mind & Life Dialogue, a meeting that gathered together a unique assortment of Buddhist teachers and Western scholars in an attempt to shed new light on the body-mind connection.
