Scott AbbottRegional Coordinator CCR Asia Pacific
Scott loves working at the interface of science and society. Using his skills from a career in international research dissemination, he supports and coordinates the various projects of CCR Asia Pacific. Scott sees the marriage of CCR’s world-leading contemplative science with philosophy, physics, psychology and neuroscience and the sharing of those insights through education, health, economic and climate sustainability as the most effective means to transform and heal our world at scale.
Marc TalloenCCRA Building Team Lead
A retired entrepreneur with experience in establishing projects, business activities and companies at an international level, Marc volunteers his practical experience as a blueprinter in the establishment and pre-construction phase of CCRA.
He hopes his contribution and secular approach may help the CCRA team to strive for a timely establishment of the CCRA Contemplatives’ Research Observatory.
He is motivated by CCR’s aim to establish such Observatories that ultimately seek to benefit the creation of a happier more peaceful community and world. Inspired by HH Dalai Lama and Lama Alan’s vision he believes it’s paramount to create a conducive environment for Contemplatives and scientists to explore the inner sources of mental conflict and distress, the roots of genuine well-being, and the origins, nature, and potentials of the mind.
