Peter began a dialogue that is expected to last several months on the Four Noble Truths as we understand them in the context of 21st century neuroscience and psychology.

He emphasized that the Truths are to first be understood conceptually, then practiced, and finally mastered. The experience of stress is to be observed, not avoided, as it’s experienced in the body and the mind.
