The Nalanda Happiness Festival I:

Friday Evening Keynote

How We Can Avoid the Earth’s Civilizational Cliff:
The Global Renaissance of India’s Contemplative Arts & Sciences


Though all cultures have contemplatives, India lead the world in teaching contemplative practices to all. The explosion of interest in Indian yoga and meditation has been fueled by evidence that they help us adapt our archaic instincts and habits to the challenges of global living and interdependence. Reviewing the new contemplative science, this talk unpacks two key ingredients of that explosion: India’s knack for making spiritual healing a life science compatible with many worldviews and lifestyles; and its art of teaching contemplative practice in step-by-step ways for people in all walks of life. Dr. Loizzo shares his own take on Tibet’s hopeful Time-Machine vision that science and spirituality will come together to help us all on our journey to sustainable happiness and global civilization.
