QCC THRIVE SERIES Combining Mindfulness, Wellness and Community for Joyful Living - Forging an Ethical Path for Secular Mindfulness 

What is mindfulness? While it has become a household name, not all agree on its meaning. In his talk, Psychology, Ethics, and Spirituality – Unraveling the Knots of Modern Mindfulness, Diaz, a scholar, and teacher in the field of contemplative science, will illuminate the similarities and differences between Buddhist and contemporary psychological framings of mindfulness and suggest an ethical path forward for studying and applying mindfulness in secular settings.

Dr. Frank Diaz is a professor at the Indiana University Jacobs School of Music, affiliate faculty for the IU Cognitive Science Program, and founder and director of the Institute for Mindfulness-Based Wellness and Pedagogy. He teaches meditative practices across the United States, and media outlets such as CNN, NPR, Science Daily, and HuffPost have featured his work. Join us and unravel the nuances of modem mindfulness!
