The Four Noble Truths & Contemplative Psychology
Buddhism and Psychology Series
The Buddha's enlightenment represents a human being's direct encounter with ultimate reality, evoking a profound insight into selfless-interconnectivity, said to be inseparable from lasting happiness. During his first teaching, the Buddha conveyed his transformative realization into a succinct formula of "Four Noble Truths", which in turn were preserved as the foundation of his contemplative science.
Recent advances in psychotherapy, mind/body medicine and cognitive neuroscience, point to a deep resonance between modern psychology and these four truths, posited by the Buddha centuries ago. Join Buddhist teacher Shastri Ethan Nichtern and Buddhist psychotherapist Dr. Miles Neale for an exploration of Buddhism's most fundamental teaching through the lenses of ancient philosophy & modern science.
