M. Editor | February 26, 2015
On Friday, February 20, 2015, the IBS, with Wisdom Publications, hosted the symposium “Mindfulness: Three Buddhist Perspectives.” The purpose of the symposium was to compare and contrast mindfulness practices in three different traditions: Theravada, Zen, and Tibetan. The panelists provide their personal perspective informed by their traditions and then comment on the modern mindfulness movement.
