Psychology of Meditation

Explore the evolution of the non-dual sense of self through the historical sweep of meditation practices that engender inner experiences. This article follows the cogent tour of the philosophy and development of subjectivity from the Vedic period through the rise of Jainism, Buddhism, Vedantic monism to non-dual Tantra; a psychology of meditation in which the sense of self-focus is balanced with a profound relational sense of "the other" within the fullness of the world. The article concludes with a discussion about the cultivation of wonder as a meditative practice - rooted historically in 10th and 11th century.
