Struggling with depression, anxiety, relationship issues, chronic pain or addiction? While pain is inevitable, suffering is not. When we cultivate a direct experience with each present moment, we can find ways to let go of self-inflicted suffering. The gentle, non-judgmental exploration of pain and the acceptance of our current condition can have a tremendous impact on our own life and the world around us. Relationship disturbances, addiction, mood disorders and environmental despair are often the call to listen more deeply.
Buddhist psychotherapy is the application of the principles of Buddhism toward the goals of psychotherapy. Reducing suffering, cultivating compassion, acceptance of the current moment, expanding our capacity for joy and improving our ability to relate to others are shared goals of Buddhism & psychotherapy. No knowledge of Buddhism necessary.
