Beth Adelson
How can the human mind help us find contentment in the face of our most difficult personal & professional challenges? Harvard Centennial Medalist, Beth Adelson has devoted the decades of her professional life to addressing this question.Her work draws on early Buddhist teachings and practices, supported by her training in experimental and analytical cognitive science.  Dr. Adelson was first trained as a dancer at the NYC Ailey & Graham studios.  She first sat with Suzuki Roshi and began her yoga practice in 1970. She then trained as a cognitive scientist at HarvardUniversity; her subsequent research on the effects of meditation was endorsed by the Dalai Lama. Her meditation teachers include:  Salzburg, Boorstein, Arnell and Goldstein; Tsultrim Allione and Alan Wallace; and Roshis Shunryu Suzuki, Joan Halifax and Jan Chozen Bayes. Dr.Adelson is the founding teacher of the 24th St. Sangha.  She is a Past Program Director at the National Science Foundation and Professor Emeritus at Rutgers. Her daily sitting practice focuses on Vipassana, the Paramitas and the Four Immeasurables: kindness, compassion, empathetic joy and equanimity. Her daily physical practices integrate meditative contentment of heart and mind with physical energy.
