I have been practicing meditation for two years already.In so far I have attended all Deepak Chopra meditation experiences which I found very helpful but not as helpful this course provided me so far.

Engaging content and excellent pace. While the level is introductory (I'd have liked a bit more depth), I would expect this from a lower-division/breadth course—and even more so from a MOOC like this.

Very good course. Robert is very real, very good in explaining concepts. I was taking n independent course about Buddism and it was easy to relate both courses. I just thing that the videos are too long. Its very dificult to wat

Robert is a great teacher, explains the core concept of awakening/enlightenment correctly based on real life experiences as I awakened and then seek further knowledge in this course to deepen my own understanding of awakening.

In 6 modules, Wright provided an excellent foundation for understanding Buddhism and its relation to modern psychological science. I am happy to better understand my own meditation practice. I am primed for more on this topic.

This course was fascinating. The theory on mind modules and how it explains how mindfulness and meditation center us is very persuasive. I would do one of this guys courses again in a heartbeat. The best I've done on Coursera.

A very well-informed and presented study of the ways in which various parts of Buddhism can be investigated by and compared with modern psychology. A valuable class for those interested in Buddhism, psychology, and meditation.

It is a very well designed course. I admire the diligence put behind the content and attempts to explain the parallels between modern psychology and Buddhist practices. This also marks a beginning of a new learning for me.

I learned a lot from Professor Wright. It was entertaining as well informative. This course made me think more deeply about Buddhism in the context of our modern world with a specific emphasis on evolutionary psychology.

I enjoyed this course immensely. It challenged my thinking quite a bit and introduced new orders of thought. I would recommend this class to anyone with an open mind and looking to stretch their current thinking process.

Not only I enjoyed the course, but I learned a lot as much for Buddhism as for evolutionary psychology. It's been a shift off mind for me. Thanks to R. Wright and all that made this course possible. I'm very grateful!

I am grateful to Dr Wright for bringing us this excellent course. While i was attracted by moral & mindful aspects of Buddhism, this course revealed the linkages or similarities with Modern Psychology.
Thanks a lot.
