The fourteenth Dalai Lama will be in Madison May 15-16 for the grand-reopening celebration of UW-Madison's Waisman Center's remodeled Center for Investigating Healthy Minds.
The CIHM studies the development of healthy qualities of the mind, such as happy and compassionate emotions, and how to cultivate these developments in children and adults.
Richard Davidson, a UW-Madison neuroscientist who established the center, studies the effects of meditation on cultivating these emotions.
The Dalai Lama has worked with Davidson on his research in the past, last visiting Davidson's lab in 2001.
The Dalai Lama and Davidson will speak together at 2:15 p.m. on Sunday, May 16 at the Overture Center for the Arts.
