Cultivating Attentional Intelligence
The cultivation of highly focused, stable, clear attention is central to the Buddha’s teachings on the path to spiritual awakening. As he declared, “The mind that is established in equipoise comes to know reality as it is.” While this has always been an indispensable foundation for the cultivation of insight, the training of attention is all the more important in today’s world. Now, more than ever before, our attention is fragmented by multitasking and thrown into disarray by the modern pace of life and the overstimulation of our senses. In this workshop, Alan Wallace will explain the importance of sustained, voluntary attention in everyday life as well as spiritual practice, and how to train the attention. Drawing on modern Western and classic Buddhist sources to illuminate this important aspect of intelligence and mental balance, the workshop will consist of lectures, guided meditations, and discussion.
