Dr. Miles Neale: Wisdom is What Sets Us Free

A few weeks ago, I caught Dr. Miles Neale, a Buddhist psychotherapist, giving a talk at the Interdependence Project in New York. In my post last week on ethics and meditation, I didn’t mention one crucial part of the meditation lifestyle: Insight or Wisdom. 

In order to get the full benefit of a life based on meditation, we need three crucial things, Wisdom, Ethical Living, and to actually do the practice. Here Miles talks about how these three come together as a complete way of life and he even relates it to modern psychotherapy. Sitting next to him is Dr. Jonathon Kaplan, who is interviewed here.


Dr. Miles Neale is a Buddhist psychotherapist, meditation teacher, and Assistant Director of the Nalanda Institute for Contemplative Science. Combining contemporary psychotherapy with the science and techniques of Indo-Tibetan Buddhism, Dr. Neale provides the conceptual maps, practical skills and emotional support that lead to optimal health and happiness.
