Mind, Consciousness, Self: A Contemplative Jungle Odyssey

A three-week adventure into the jungles of Costa Rica for a philosophical exploration of mind, consciousness, and self. A large part of discovering who one is involves understanding one’s interconnectedness with other people and the natural environment. Citizens of Costa Rica refer to the beauty, simplicity and easy pace of life as la pura vida or “the pure life,” and the Nicoya Peninsula is designated as one of the world’s five Blue Zones, where people tend to enjoy the longest and the healthiest lives. You will immerse yourself in topics such as attention and awareness, embodiment, social/environmental “situatedness,” interpersonal neurobiology, and animal minds. The course offers you a unique opportunity for self-understanding and self-discovery! Click the button below for more details about this program!
