1. Graduate Focuses on Intersection of Coding and Meditation

    Graduate David Ernst has studied both coding and meditation in immersive settings, and he finds many similarities between the two, and ways in which one can augment the other. Ernst had meditated in high school, but he was really awoken to its power three years ago, when he went on his first Vipassana retreat. This is a ten-day silent course, in which participants focus on their own breath and sensations for nearly ten hours a day.
