Buddhism and Science session
at Manchester Buddhist Convention 2013 was led by Dr Eliott Cohen. Elliot studied and practiced with a range of Buddhist schools.
This presentation considers the transformation of Buddhism into a form of Psychology/Psychotherapy in the West (and increasingly in the East). Having written critically on this in the past ( http://www.discourseunit.com/arcp8/arcp8cohen.pdf) this talk will focus more on the positive and transformative affects the recent emphasis on compassion may be having on Psychological practice and Psychotherapeutic interventions.
Eliott is a Chartered Psychologist, Transpersonal Psychotherapist and authorised teacher of Buddhist meditation through the Dhamma Nikethanaya Buddhist Academy.
