Meeting Description: 

Learning to observe experiences from a place of stillness enables one to relate to life without fear and clinging. One begins to accept all aspects of life with increasing equanimity, self-compassion and balance. Life is seen as a constantly changing process.

For 2500 years, Buddhist meditation practices have developed what is referred to as “skillful methods” for the study and transformation of the mind/body, including developing awareness, concentration, stillness, mindfulness and other attention skills. The integration of Buddhist Psychology with modern day Ericksonian Mind/Body Therapy, Somatic Experiencing, Creative Thinking and other neuroscientific insights reveal that people can learn to change their thinking and behavior in ways that revitalize the brain, enhance happiness, cultivate learned optimism, promote self-compassion, emotional regulation, and well-being.

This course will introduce participants to the theory and clinical methods of mindfulness-based psycho-therapeutic systems, mindfulness meditation, and creative thinking. Integrating this Buddhist Psychology and the Non-Dual school of mindfulness practices with the contemporary theories of Somatic Experiencing, Ericksonian mind-body, Interpersonal Neurobiology and Health psychologies, participants will have the opportunity to directly experience, practice, and learn clinical skills for promoting insight, self-compassion and self-regulation. This seminar will be theoretical and highly experiential, as participants will practice clinical skills and engage in self-exercises by utilizing meditation and breathing methods during the symposium.
