  • Self-Transcendence: Discovering One Kind of Awareness by Losing Another

    Wednesday, August 27, 2014

    Join A Healthier U and the Drexel Meditation Group for a special lecture related to the Science of Meditation. Religious beliefs and mystical experiences can be found in human societies across the globe and throughout history. Self-transcendence - a state characterized by the dissolution of boundaries between self and other and a feeling of connectedness to the universe as a whole - is a primary feature of such spiritual experiences and is commonly reported in various contemplative practices, including meditation. However, little is known about how this uniquely human and often profound state arises. One possibility is that self-transcendence emerges, in part, from a disruption to body awareness in states of intense concentration. This lecture will discuss Buddhist texts as well as psychological and neural studies supporting this embodied basis of self-transcendence, and how such a low-level physical alteration might drive such lofty and mysterious experiences.
