Example text

Psoriasis is not skin cancer, but it shares some of the same genes with skin cancer, so this study has some interesting implications for cancer treatment. It was also a costeffectiveness study, in that faster skin clearing means fewer treatments and less cost. It is also an example of integrative medicine, since the meditative intervention is integrated into the delivery of the allopathic treatment. In summary, mindfulness-based interventions like MBSR and its relatives are an attempt to introduce core Buddhist meditative practices and principles into medicine and psychiatry in a universal framework that is still as true as possible to the dharma, thereby expanding the range of medical and psychological models for understanding disease and for approaching people suffering from chronic diseases and stress-related conditions with greater compassion and wisdom.

There is no suffering or dissatisfaction created around it. This is a key element of Buddhist spiritual and psychological training. It will be described in many presentations during this meeting. To expand a little on what Matthieu was saying, meditation would be defined as the refinement of innate abilities that we already possess. Sometimes the word “meditation” can be loaded with all kinds of preconceptions that we’ve picked up from different TV shows, popular magazines, news, or gossip. But from the classical Buddhist perspective, meditation isn’t an attempt to have any particularly special experience or strange vision or acquire special abilities.

The Buddha used another analogy, a simile of the wounded soldier: A soldier is shot with a poisoned arrow on the battlefield. The field surgeon comes and is about to pull the arrow out, but the soldier says, “Oh no, don’t pull the arrow out until you find out the name of the person who shot me. I also need to know the name of the village that he came from. Not only that, I need to know the names of his parents and his grandparents on both sides. I need to know the kind of wood the arrow was made from.
