Over the past 30 years, psychological science has embraced one core aspect of Buddhist practice: mindfulness. However, there is less clarity about the context in which mindfulness is best situated to facilitate flourishing. Within the broader Buddhist context, there are numerous other features and a multitude of contemplative practices, many of which science has largely neglected. In this conversation between senior Buddhist monk Ajahn Brahm and contemplative studies researcher Dr Nicholas Van Dam, we will explore what lies beyond mindfulness. We will look at how science can better understand contemplative practices originating from Buddhism and what the broader principles and practices might contribute to a life well-lived. We will also explore how science might inform and enrich contemporary Buddhist practice.
