Dr. Paul R. Fleischman will be giving a lecture titled, “The Universal Features of Meditation” from 4:00-5:30 PM on Wednesday, January 20, 2016, at the Mary S. Harkness Auditorium, Sterling Hall of Medicine, 333 Cedar Street, Yale University, New Haven, Connecticut. Dr. Fleischman trained at Yale University, practiced psychiatry for over thirty years, and has been honored by the American Psychiatric Association for his unique contributions to the study of psychiatry and religion. He has also been appointed a Vipassana Meditation teacher by Mr. S.N. Goenka, who assigned Dr. Fleischman to present meditation to professionals and intellectuals in the West. In the recent past he has lectured at Brown, Harvard, MIT, Tufts, NYU, and Columbia, as well as in many countries around the world. In this year’s second annual presentation at Yale, he will build bridges between Vipassana practice and all forms of inner peace. Dr. Fleischman is the author of Wonder: When and Why the World Appears Radiant, and many other books.
The talk is free and open to the general public. The format of the talk includes a one hour lecture which will be followed by a 30-minute Q&A session. For further information, to RSVP or if any old student is interested in volunteering for this event, please firstname.lastname@example.org.
