Alejandro Chaoul, Ph.D., Bon-Buddhist Meditation
Learn about meditation in the ancient Bon-Buddhist tradition of Tibet, and how it can be a "medicine" for our mind-wandering and emotional entanglements. We will also practice simple techniques of "Meditation Precious Pills" for every day life. Dr. Alejandro Chaoul is an assistant professor and director of education at M. D. Anderson Cancer Center's Integrative Medicine program, where he conducts research using mind-body techniques with cancer patients, holds group and individual meditation classes, and directs the education initiatives on integrative medicine. He is also an associate faculty member at The McGovern Center for Humanities and Ethics at University of Texas Medical School, where he teaches medical students in the areas of spirituality, complementary and integrative medicine, and end of life care. Alejandro is also on the Board and is a meditation and Tibetan yoga teacher of the Ligmincha Texas Institute for the Tibetan Meditative and Healing Arts as well as an advisor for the Rothko Chapel. The series is co-sponsored by Ligmincha Texas Institute, The Jung Center of Houston, M. D. Anderson Cancer Center, and the Rothko Chapel.
