Dr. Miles Neale is among the leading voices of the current generation of Buddhist teachers and a forerunner in the emerging field of contemplative psychotherapy. He is a Buddhist psychotherapist in private practice, Assistant Director of the Nalanda Institute for Contemplative Science, Clinical Instructor of Psychology at Weill Cornell Medical College and contributing expert on mindfulness meditation for the BBC World Service. Dr. Neale’s approach to personal healing and transformation is informed by contemplative neuroscience, an integration of Indo-Tibetan Buddhist psychology and meditative arts, depth psychotherapy and current neuroscience. His free podcasts and YouTube videos have reached thousands, expressing ancient Buddhist principals and practices in a modern, accessible and impassioned way. Dr. Neale’s forthcoming book and audio course ‘Gradual Awakening: The Tibetan Buddhist Path of Becoming Fully Human’ (Sounds True, 2018) critiques modern materialism and explores the Tibetan Buddhist gradual path to awakening based on the art and neuroscience of visualization.
