The first online course on Buddhism & Quantum Physics will be available online for September 2023!
Science & Wisdom LIVE is proud to collaborate with Jamyang London Buddhist Centre to launch an exclusive e-Learning programme, launching in September 2023, which will produce 1 new e-Course per year.
All courses will be focused on the intersection of Buddhist Philosophy, Science, and Mindfulness. Each online course is designed to accommodate both beginners and more experienced students in any fields, taking you step-by-step through the different modules of each course. The courses will include video materials, interactive quiz questions, live components to support your online learning, a syllabus and additional reading materials, as well as practical components to establish your own meditation practice and enhance your well-being in your daily life.
Online Course I:
Buddhism & Quantum Physics
“I think Buddhist Philosophy and Quantum Mechanics can shake hands on their view of the world. We can see in these great examples the fruits of human thinking.”
– His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama
This self-paced, online course explores the profound parallels between Buddhist philosophy and modern quantum physics. The intersection of Buddhist studies and quantum physics bridges the gap between the ancient wisdom of contemplative tradition with modern scientific knowledge, expanding your understanding of the nature of reality.
A Beginner’s Guide to Quantum Mechanics – Dr. John Realpe & Dr. Marco Colnaghi
Lesson 1: What is Quantum Mechanics?
• The uncertainty principle
• Describing quantum states
• Schrödinger’s cat
• Wave–particle duality & double–slit experiment
• The measurement problem (Wigner’s paradox)
• Non–locality and entanglement
Lesson 2: What is Quantum Mechanics?
• The Copenhagen interpretation
• David Bohm’s implicate order
• The Multiverse (many–worlds)
• Carlo Rovelli’s relational interpretation
• Other interpretations of QM
About Online Course 1: Buddhism & Quantum Physics
This interactive online course on Buddhism & Quantum Physics will provide you with new tools to analyse your mind and investigate the nature of reality and the self. With this fundamental shift in perspective, you can become more open to experiencing joy in daily life, expanding your worldview, improving your well-being, experiencing mindfulness, and cultivating a deeper meditation practice.
This online course is accessible to all, whether you are a beginner to Buddhism and quantum physics, well-versed in Buddhist teachings, a renowned physicist, or even a bodhisattva. You do not need prior knowledge of Buddhism or quantum physics to benefit from participating in this course. You only need a desire to learn! The syllabus is designed to be highly accessible, engaging, and applicable to daily life; anyone who is interested in Buddhist practice or quantum physics is welcome to join.
The goal of the course is to unite people from all backgrounds to mutually explore the intricate connections between science and spirituality. Every human being is searching for meaning in this mysterious universe and through this shared sense of wonder we can cultivate insights, build our community (sangha) and expand the consciousness of humanity.
We are committed to making this Buddhism course an accessible e-Learning experience that anyone can fit into their daily life. If pricing is of concern, please get in touch – no one will be turned away because of lack of funds.
