More in the Vein of Spirituatlity and Culture

Earlier this week I posted an article that describes the western phenomenon of “McMindfullness” — practicing meditation in the west. Can modern westerners gain peace and psychological benefit from an ancient Chinese technique?

This article, which describes some fascinating research with Buddhists in Thailand and evangelical Christians in the US, talks again about the importance of culture, and language, in the perceptions and practices of spirituality. Read them both and let me know what you think! (The photo is from (Jedsada Kiatpornmongkol / Shutterstock)
