Join Maureen Seaberg at Tibet House US Gallery 4/14 @ 7 PM
Recent studies (Walsh, UC Irvine) have shown that the more one practices Buddhist meditation, the more one experiences synesthesia, a blending of senses. In fact, the highest states appear to be invariably synesthetic.
In the new book, Tasting the Universe, journalist Maureen Seaberg and Tibet House Director of East West Research, Dr. William C Bushell, go on a quest to determine the truth of this noetic state which occurs naturally in about five percent of the population and is being feverishly researched around the globe in top neuroscience labs.
Dr. Robert Thurman, Dr. Amit Goswami, Dr. Stuart Hameroff, Lama Za Rinpoche and other top thinkers provide a spiritual and even quantum context for the experience through interviews appearing in the book. And adding glamour to the mix, they get the first-time testimony of synesthetes Itzhak Perlman, Billy Joel and the family of Marilyn Monroe (who has recently been found to have been a synesthete).
