The Contemplative Studies Program (CSP) is based on Dr. Miles Neale's book Gradual Awakening and the the Gradual Path (lam rim) literature of Tibetan Buddhism. The program presents Tibet's ancient mind science seamlessly integrated with current neuropsychology and trauma research making it accessible to the modern mindset and relevant to our contemporary needs. The gradual path is for seekers ready to commit to the hard work, over the long haul, that it takes to heal and become fully human.

PRAISE FOR GRADUAL AWAKENING

"Miles Neale’s GRADUAL AWAKENING offers a much-needed answer to the proliferation of popular spiritual teachings that promise some sudden enlightenment, as if awakening were the ultimate escape from the inexorable relativity and messy impermanence of the human condition. If you want a way through the maze of today’s pop spirituality to find the real path to full awakening, read this book!"

Robert A. F. Thurman, Ph.D.
Je Tsong Khapa Professor of Tibetan Studies, Columbia University, President, Tibet House US

"Miles Neale leads us on our own journey with neuroscience and psychotherapy drawing us back to spirit. He illuminates traditional teachings for reflection and action, from aspiration and refuge to radical altruism. This is strong and effective medicine. Gradual Awakening is a true friend and guide for bringing liberating values to life."

Sharon Salzberg
Author of Real Love and Real Happiness

"As an increasingly global community continues to confront environmental, socioeconomic and geopolitical obstacles, I hope Gradual Awakening will generate an awareness of the potential within all of us to create harmony and bring about peaceful, collaborative solutions to the issues we face. "

Richard Gere
Actor, Founder, The Gere Foundation

"A fresh new voice has emerged; Miles’ message is both fiery and clear. GRADUAL AWAKENING is a timely revelation, offering an unabashed critique of our modern materialist paradigm as well as an ancient yet accessible roadmap for those wondering what's next. On your journey of awakening and social transformation, Miles Neale is a capable ally and an adept guide."
