Title: Shifting Worlds Changing Minds: Where the Sciences and Buddhism Meet.
Description: Boston New Science Library / Shambhala, 1987. Paperback octavo, good plus condition, spine faintly creased, minor edgewear & rubbing. 310 pp. By nuclear physicist who is also vice-president of the Naropa Institute. From the author of "Perceiving Ordinary Magic," this book proposes that both science and Buddhism offer powerful insights into human nature that can help to bring about profound changes in our lives and society. Argues that a radical uprooting of our beliefs about reality is necessary if we are to resolve our confusion about our world and ourselves. An in-depth, non-technical analysis of the perceptual process, drawing on the latest data from cognitive science - the "new science of mind." Added to these are insights gained from the Buddhist practice of mindfulness - awareness meditation. ISBN: 0877733686.
