Lions Roar : May 2010
SHAMBHALA SUN MAy 2010 97 CCARE continued from page 49 graduate student recruited to be CCARE’s program director and Doty’s go-to guy. If you have an hour or so and you can catch him, Finkelstein will share with you the activities the center is sponsoring with the bubbliness generally reserved for summer camp counselors, while describing CCARE’s varied research efforts with the precision of a well-tuned academic mind. Finkelstein is particularly excited about the development of a for-credit medita- tion course using the Jinpa protocol. The course would be open to any interested undergraduate at Stanford, and he thinks there would be lots of interest, given that two recent lectures sponsored by CCARE attracted packed houses. In October, Mat- thieu Ricard—a longtime monk who has been one of the subjects in fMRI studies of the effects of lifelong meditation prac- tice—discussed the roots of altruism, a topic that plays an important role in his book Happiness: A Guide to Developing Life’s Most Important Skill. And in January, Philip Zimbardo de- livered the inaugural lecture of CCARE’s Meng-Wu Lecture Series. (Upcoming speakers include renowned emotion-re- searcher Paul Ekman and theologian Karen Armstrong, who is spearheading the multi- faith Charter for Compassion campaign). Zimbardo designed the celebrated Stan- ford Prison Experiment, which pitted stu- dents identified as guards against students identified as prisoners in a mock prison in the basement of the Stanford psychol- ogy building. The experiment had to be stopped after just six days, when the jailers’ cruelty reached levels that shocked and dis- turbed participants and researchers alike. (The experiment attracted recent interest in the wake of the Abu Ghraib scandal.) Zimbardo, who sits on CCARE’s board, discussed how his research focuses on the causes of heroism and whistle-blowing, in his view a form of altruism. These lectures, along with conferences and symposia sponsored by CCARE, help build the networks and thought partnerships that can get a new academic dzogchen the natural great perfection D ZOGCHEN RETREATS WIT H LAMA SURYA DA S Dzogchen is the consummate practice of Tibetan Buddhism. Considered by many to be "the teaching of our time," Dzogchen is direct, immediate, essentialized, adaptable, and profound: a pure awareness practice applicable to any circumstance and readily inte grated into modern life.
