Thank you for visiting the website of Neil Hayes, author of A View From A Lake: Buddha, Mind and Future. The book is a practical and approachable explanation of the mind teachings of the Buddha, in the context of what psychologists know about the human mind today. With a contemporary twist, it will appeal to those new to mindfulness and psychology, as well as to more serious students of mind, meditation and the Buddha’s teaching.
Neil initially pursued an academic career in experimental psychology, but moved into the IT industry, where he now has a prominent role. He has had extensive contact with monks and other practitioners in multiple Buddhist traditions, and has been an active meditator for many years. In his book, he draws on all this experience to take the reader on a journey through the mind, from ancient India to the Internet age. He writes clearly and confidently, and explains complex matters in a pragmatic and often humorous way.
