Lions Roar : May 2010
SHAMBHALA SUN MAy 2010 81 law school, Rogers began to practice mindfulness medi- tation with the Mi- ami Beach sangha, a group of students inspired by the teachings of Thich Nhat hanh. he also became interested in neuroscience and secular mindfulness. In early 2005, he attended a Mindfulness- Based stress Reduction program with Jon kabat-zinn. While there, Rogers met Dan siegel, author of The Mindful Brain. siegel’s work, together with Rogers’ own mindfulness practice and teaching experi- ence, inspired Rogers to start a mindful- ness program for lawyers. Rogers’ program, Jurisight, uses legal lan- guage and thinking to express mindfulness principles. For example, Rogers says, “ The attractive nuisance doctrine refers to perils that are also attractive, such as a swimming pool that’s easily accessible by children. They’re enticed to jump in, but unsuper- vised they could drown. In Jurisight, I talk about how jealousy and anger are some- how attractive places to go, but they are also nuisances. how can we catch our mind as we begin to move toward these attractive nuisances?” In Rogers’ daylong programs, which earn lawyers CLEs, he uses these as discussion catalysts that become remind- ers. “If we can connect a subtle principle of mindfulness to a term that already reso- nates in the lawyer’s brain, it becomes more accessible, more likely to be called upon, and more likely to become a reminder to practice during times of challenge.” In June, Rogers presented a program at the Florida Bar Convention called “Mindfulness, Neuroscience, and the Law,” which focused on improving effec- tiveness and reducing stress through un- derstanding how the brain works under certain conditions. he was also invited to offer a noncredit, eight-week, two-hour- per-week Jurisight class for first-year law students as part of a wellness initiative at the University of Miami law school. Fifty students, or about 10 percent of the class, completed the program this year. ♦ Scott Rogers july8-july11 mindsight: exploring the neuroscience and psychology of awareness Daniel J. Siegel, MD; Roshi Joan Halifax, PhD Seeing and learning to shape the internal flow of our mental lives is a skill we can develop throughout our lives. This ability to monitor and modify the flow of information and energy is called “mindsight” and first develops in the setting of our relationships with caregivers early in life. july 28 - august 1 zen brain: zen practice and the emerging science of alleviating suffering Roshi Joan Halifax, PhD; James Austin, MD; Amishi Jha, PhD; Al Kaszniak, PhD; Shauna L. Shapiro, PhD; Susan Bauer-Wu, PhD In recent years, neuroscientific research involving experi- enced Buddhist practitioners, and clinical science studies of interventions derived from Buddhist meditative practice, have motivated new skillful approaches to reducing suffering. In this retreat, Roshi and leading scientists in this emerging area will discuss recent advances in application of these approaches in the alleviation of suffering. upaya zen center mindsight & zen brain � santa fe, new mexico 505-986-8518 www.upaya .org upaya@ upaya.org C M Y CM MY CY CMY K KoseiAd_final.pdf 1/28/10 10:13:13 PM
