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.

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.

I love the course, but sometimes the content is too dense and deep so some concepts are hard to grasp. =D

Very interesting topic. The professor talks in a very approachable way, gives good examples and keeps you involved. Would love to learn a bit more about meditation vs modern psychology. Highly recommended!

I find the subject and the material fascinating. Robert is a great lecturer with an obvious wealth of knowledge on the subject to impart to his students. I am thoroughly enjoying it and I look forward to studying with Robert again in the future. It has really opened my mind to a whole new field of study.

The course is number one among all ~10 courses I've taken on Coursera platform! Bullet points:
1) The material is given in a structured way and simple to understand because of every-day examples we encounter in our life.
2) Outstanding audio and video quality of the lectures makes Princeton University's coursers more likely to be taken.
3) The lecturer has touched a various of controversial topics (religions, Buddhism in particular) and masterfully aligned them with a modern psychology discoveries.
