A century of unprecedented scientific and technological innovation has given humanity the potential to resolve many of its material challenges. Nevertheless, fear and greed have perpetuated exploitation and inequity of a massive scale, while dissatisfaction and delusion have driven rampant consumerism that now threatens to devour the natural environment that sustains us.

In this talk, Dr Alan Wallace will draw on contemplative science to present the dimensions of human flourishing and provide a model of mental balance linked to a range of complimentary contemplative practices.

Presented by the Centre for Positive Psychology, Melbourne Graduate School of Education.
