Introduction to the MindScience Academy

MindScience Academy Conference. Reality is not as it appears. A joint investigation between East and West.

MindScience Academy aims to promote a multidisciplinary approach to the study of the mind and the emotions by bringing together the methods, tools and knowledge from various Western scientific disciplines (biophysics, neuroscience, psychology, psychophysiology, philosophy of mind, and so on) and the enormous wealth of wisdom accumulated over more than 2,500 years in the Buddhist tradition through first-person analysis of the mind and its processes by means of introspection, concentration, meditation and mindfulness.

MSA seeks to promote true inner peace in the world by exploring and sharing knowledge of the mind and emotions with the wider public, using opportunities for open dialogue and exchange between the Buddhist sciences of mind and the various disciplines of Western academia.
