Mind in the Balance

Mind in the Balance

Meditation in Science, Buddhism, and Christianity

by B. Alan Wallace, PhD

  • Reviewed by The Editors on June 1, 2009

    One of the lead investigators of the Shamatha Project, B. Alan Wallace adds to his prolific writings this lucid and illuminating examination of the similarities between Christian and Buddhist meditative practices and their connection to contemporary cognitive science, quantum mechanics, and the philosophy of mind. He also outlines a sequence of meditations that readers can undertake to directly experience the nature of consciousness. Wallace is a master, guiding our inquiry into consciousness in exciting new directions.
