Though still in the early stages, there have been efforts to scientifically study the clinical application of meditative practices as well as the physiological effects of meditation in both novice and advanced practitioners. This Dialogue is a further opportunity for some of the scientists who have contributed most to this field to present their approaches to the Dalai Lama and a panel of other scientists and contemplatives. This exchange will also provide an opportunity for scientists whose basic research is focused on mind-brain-body interaction to learn more about meditation and to contribute to an ongoing dialogue about the mechanisms by which meditation may be affecting our physical and mental health.
