The staff team for this event was Dharmavidya, Prasada, Bhaktika and Liz Burnham. Liz and Bhaktika were new to the staff team so this was a first run of the new expanded staff group. It all went very well.
Buddhist Psychology offers ways to cut through habitual responses.
This retreat will focus on the second and third Noble Truths. We
will look at how we react to afflictions and add onto our suffering
by building the "wall of self". If we can see how our thoughts and
ways create our worlds we can start to do things differently and
walk a path towards a better world. Together we will share and
explore the possibilities.
Dharmavidya and Prasada are currently in Redding, north California, offering workshops for psychotherapists and members of the local Buddhist sangha. A small team of good friends are hosting them in a warm and hospitable manner and the work is well received. Today there was a workshop for therapist's on the opening phase of the therapeutic encounter and yesterday a gathering for experienced therapists to work on personal issues together.
