Over dit evenement

CONTENT MODULE 1: MINDFULNESS, BUDDHIST AND NON-BUDDHIST RESOURCES

1. Mindfulness-Based Stress-Reduction (MBSR) Training:

All participants and students will be invited to attend and to actively participate in a full eight-week MBSR program, in the format as developed by Jon Kabat Zinn. However, attendance is conditional on prior screening: a positive advice based on the customary intake to MBSR.

2. Buddhism, Mindfulness and Psychology, seminar level 300:

Since the late nineteenth century, various forms of Buddhism emerged from modernising Asia and, with apparent ease, penetrated new cognitive, spiritual and cultural domains—many far removed from their origins, geographically as well as epistemically. In the process, Buddhism became abbreviated to ‘meditation’ and later even to mindfulness, and a curious marriage of convenience emerged between Buddhism and psychology. How did this come to pass and what does the most recent global rise of interest tell us about Buddhism, and what does it reveal about those who are interested?

In this course we will explore that marriage of convenience between Buddhism and psychology by tracing the reception history and mainstreaming of mindfulness ‘meditation’. Literary, ritual, social, but also perceived spiritual and philosophical aspects of Buddhist traditions will come into view, in an exercise in Buddhist hermeneutics that is self-reflexive. The focus is on older Buddhist and Theravāda sources, which, by their perceived remoteness, challenge our own world views and self-understandings. It thus resumes the self-reflexive exercise of studying various religious traditions of World Religions, but by engaging the case study of mindfulness. Participants in this course will also be granted the opportunity to attend a full eight-week Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) training programme.

TIME AND PLACE: Six selected seminar meetings from the BA/Minor course on Buddhism, Mindfulness and Psychology (taught by Dr Henk Blezer). Starting Wednesday September 8 and ending October 13, with phase out to October 20th, 1:30 PM-5 PM.

And 8 practice sessions (Mindfulness-based Stress Reduction, MBSR) (taught by Nelleke van Zessen). Starting Wednesday September 8 and ending October 20th with phase out to October 27th, in the evening, most likely slot: 6:30 PM-9:15 PM. Both classes will be on VU campus.

ECTS: The courses amount to approximately 3 ECTS each (courses 2 and 3 consist of specially selected parts from 6 ECTS courses); 6 ECTS total. ECTS can be credited for regular university students who follow the 6 ECTS versions of these courses (as part of their approved programs or who are entitled to take them as electives); others will receive a certificate.

The latter is also the default option for the MBSR training, which does not translate to ECTS for students, other than those attending the Buddhist Seminary. All but the MBSR training are conducted seminar-style, with assigned readings and requiring active participation in discussion.

LANGUAGE OF INSTRUCTION: Dutch and English,
