Contact person : Jacobien Schreurs
Several teachers have been approached to give a one-hour talk about the subject that inspired them the most.

Today’s talk led by Acharya Dr Han F. de Wit.
'Buddhist meditation and its contemplative psychology', 

After twenty-five years the Dutch bestseller De Verborgen Bloei (in 13th edition!) is back in the USA with the title 'The Great Within. The Transformative Power and Psychology of the Spiritual Path'.

What makes this bestseller topical is its central message: the great spiritual traditions and Buddhism in particular contain their own kind of understanding of  the human mind. It contains a contemplative psychology which clarifies our spiritual path and its practices. At this Zoom talk we will explore the contemplative psychology of Buddhism and what it tells us about our perceptions, thoughts and (non)awareness; how their interplay creates our everyday experience and how this relates to a hidden blossoming that the Buddha discovered through the practice of meditation.

A presentation on Buddhist meditation and its contemplative psychology, led by Acharya Dr Han F. de Wit, leading Dharma teacher in the tradition of Shambhala Buddhism and known for the accessible and playful way he expresses the Buddhist vision in our time. Han de Wit is a student of Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche and the late Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche .

He is the author of widely read books on Buddhism and psychology.
