About the Course
This 4-parts online course is an introduction to the origins, foundations, and practices of Contemplative Creative Science and its integration into mental health. This course is both theoretical and experiential.
In this course, you are invited to discover the origins of Contemplative Science (CS) and Contemplative Arts (CA) to understand the foundations of Contemplative Creative Science (CCS). It is informed by traditional Eastern Asian Dharma, Dharma arts, and “Buddhist Modernism” (McMahan, 2008), and the latest research-based on contemplative science and contemplative arts, Buddhist psychology, mindfulness- and compassion-based therapies, and neuroscience. Then, we look briefly at the integrations of CS and CA in North American culture and mental health, before going into CCS theory, embodied mind training programs, and contemplative creative therapies to awaken self, in relation to other beings and the planet.
