A New Psychology for a New Era

I would talk about the roots of mindfulness in the contemplative practices of ancient India, and why both the theory and practice of mindfulness is so important to our post-modern understanding of consciousness and healing. My basic theme would be the significance of regarding mind as a process rather than as a product, and the opportunities made available to therapeutic transformation by the more open Buddhist conception of the self. Finally, I would want to stress the intrinsic relationship in Buddhist thought and practice between psychological health and ethics.
