Very nice course given by excellent lector. Analyses Buddhism basics from scientific point of view (mostly from the Theory of Evolution). Recommended for all interested in Buddhism, meditation and evolution.

Every lesson is very interesting, I had ever leant in such a smart a beautiful way the link between science and buddhism.

This was my first course on either Buddhism and Psychology. I really enjoyed it. The lecturer does a great job and the division of the lessons was perfect. I also enjoyed the "office hours", where the lecturer was more free to express his opinions in an informal way.

Really interesting topic. Robert Hansen does a great job linking two (seemingly) completely different topics while explaining both of them in depth.
