Dr Muhr works with research ethics and is a visiting professor in Bioethics at St George’s University, Grenada and has collaborated with Christian Medical College, Vellore, India and Universidad San Martin de Porres, Lima, Peru, and established international courses addressing Human rights issues in medicine with a gender perspective, which has stimulated her to further search for a holistic perspective in medicine.
Together with Dr Muhr’s studies in Buddhist Psychology, ”Unity in Duality”, and teachings in Neuroscience at ”Science weeks” at Drepung Monastery in Mundgod and Bylakuppe, and Dharamsala and in ”Science meets Dharma Dialogue” at DLIHE, Bangalore she has become increasingly aware of the vast knowledge available in the Buddhist Inner science. Dr Muhr is convinced that medical science and practice would benefit greatly if a broader perspective including an increased awareness of everything’s interrelatedness would be taken into account.

 

 

 

 

Mindfull Meditation from Eastern Inner Science Tradition

This chapter explains the tradition of mindfulness meditations from the point of view of Eastern Inner Science tradition in accordance with Nalanda university as described in Unity in Duality® by Tarab Tulku, a Buddhist scholar who sought to explain them in secular terms. Mindfulness, as used herein, refers to the traditional Buddhist spiritual discipline of ’the four mindfulness meditations’ (of body, feeling, mind and phenomena). The Unity in Duality view examines the interrelated nature of reality using a polar framework of ‘subject-object,’ ‘body-mind’ and ‘energy-matter’.
