We are pleased to welcome back Jeff Colombe, Ph.D, as part of an occasional series of supplementary talks regarding mind in the modern world.


As humans are biological creatures, our bodies have ways of protecting themselves from harm and seeking favorable things like comfort, safety, food, and reproduction. As intensely social creatures, we also have innate and conditioned ways of promoting our social selves. All of this gives us rich emotional lives, providing the basis for us to enjoy happiness, and to suffer loss and risk. This presentation will take a look at human emotions and their pivotal role in our mental health, and how challenges can make us resilient against "the slings and arrows of outrageous fortune."


Jeff Colombe has a B.S. in biomedical engineering and a Ph.D. in neurobiology, and works for a not-for-profit advising the federal government in science and technology issues in the public interest. He has over 20 years of study under teachers of Kashmir Shaivism and Dzogchen meditation.
