Buddhist Psychotherapy differs in some ways from Western psychologies in that it initially focuses on human potential rather than human pathology. When you experience problems with living, it doesn’t find you in need of fixing. Instead, Buddhist Psychotherapy views all suffering as an opportunity for growth and change. Mindfulness Practice is an aspect of a Buddhist approach to psychotherapy. Several definitions of mindfulness have been used in modern psychology. According to various prominent psychological definitions, Mindfulness refers to a psychological quality that involves bringing one’s complete attention to the present experience on a moment-to-moment basis and involves paying attention in a particular way: on purpose, in the present moment, and nonjudgmentally. This workshop will explore the integration of Buddhist principles with the various types of Western psychotherapy.
