In this session we will explore the wise and loving perspectives of Buddhist Psychology. These transformative teachings and practices can awaken in clients and therapists alike an inner capacity for wakefulness, joy, dignity, and compassion—Buddha-nature. Combining practical and clinical examples, teaching stories, and innate wisdom we will consider the heart of healing, love, consciousness and the nature of mind.

Educational Objectives:

  1. Learn to apply mindfulness trainings for body, feelings, thoughts and relationship.
  2. Explore how you might integrate Buddhist psychology’s core principles of mental health, well-being and shift of identity into traditional western clinical approaches.
  3. Learn to employ the skillful means of directed intention to facilitate short and long term development.
