Chenrezig Institute Event Calendar
Introduction to Buddhism with Ben Isbel
5 November @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm AEST$15.00
Why did the Buddha teach? What did the Buddha have to say that had never been said before?
In this Introduction to Buddhism talk, Ben Isbel will guide students to start looking at some of the unique hallmarks of Buddha’s teachings – the Four Seals, the Four Noble Truths, the Two Truths – and see how all of these teachings lead to a single goal, like a hundred rivers that pass under a single bridge. That goal is the elimination of suffering.
Ben Isbel is a mindfulness teacher with over 25 years’ experience spanning both traditional Buddhist meditation techniques and contemporary psychological approaches to mindfulness. Ben has studied in both the Theravadin and Mahayana Buddhist traditions and holds a B. of Psychology (Honours) and a PhD in Psychology.
Until recently Ben was the Research Program Coordinator at the University of the Sunshine Coast’s Healthy Brain Ageing Clinic where he investigated the use of mindfulness to prevent the development of age-related cognitive decline and dementia in older adults. As a neuroscientist and contemplative researcher, Ben has developed a comprehensive cognitive model of mindfulness and has used advanced EEG techniques to show how mindfulness training can improve cognition and mood in older adults while at the same time transforming the ageing brain.
Ben is currently offering mindfulness training at Pramana Wellbeing in Palmwoods on the Sunshine Coast, Queensland.
