Summer Institute in Buddhism


June 14–17
This seminar will explore the philosophy of Buddhist practice, with a special focus on the practices associated with the four immeasurable qualities of love, compassion, sympathetic joy, and equanimity.

Dr. Hayes will lead students in an examination of the typologies of human personalities, as presented by the Theravādin Buddhist authors Upatissa and Buddhaghosa, and discuss these thinkers’ claim that certain types of meditation are suitable for some personality types but counterproductive for others. Those Buddhist personality types will be explored along with other typologies, such as the enneagram, that other spiritual traditions have used to help people find suitable contemplative programs.
