Event Description

Mindfulness, grounding, breathing and qi gong. Therapeutic interaction between Taoism and Buddhism

with Marc Boillat

This will be a day of theory and practice. We will discover more about Qi Gong, its aims, its relevance to health and to the Buddhist model: its ability to take us beyond conditioning. We will also explore grounding and embodiment; breathing and awareness and the main difficulties during training. We will look at static postures as well as the ancient Buddhist sequence “17 movements for the preparation of inner energy”. There will be time for questions and discussion.

Marc Boillat  is a qualified breathing re-education instructor (Buteyko). He taught mindfulness and Ch’an for several years with the BLIA Spain. In recent years Marc specialized in autism and challenging behaviour, a field in which he still works. Marc has studied Chinese Medical Qi Gong, nutrition, and teaches tai chi chuan and qi gong. He is a Legum Doctor with a doctorate in criminal anthropology (psychodynamic model) and holds a degree in Scots Law. He is also qualified in psychoanalysis, NLP and holds a diploma in Academic Medicine with the SUPSI University (Italian Switzerland).

Buddhist Therapists Forum is a gathering of people with an interest in therapy and Buddhism. We usually host a speaker/facilitator who has an interesting perspective or methodology to share. Our programme is wide-ranging and draws on different spiritual and philosophical traditions as well as Buddhism, and on a broad range of therapeutic and psychological topics.

The format of forums will vary depending on the speaker/facilitator. Most will involve discussion and some may involve personal sharing or workshop style exercises. We ask participants to take responsibility for managing personal and professional boundaries.

Forums are open to anyone with an interest in a particular topic, but most of those who attend are practising therapists, students on counselling programmes or others who work in the mental health field. We attract local counsellors and therapists as well as people who have trained with us in the past and current students. Although forums are generally professionally orientated, they are open to anyone and sometimes attract people with no formal training in the subject.If you are unsure about attending, do ask us.

Tariki students can count forums towards their peer learning requirement and we provide letters confirming attendance for CPD purposes.

Grounded in Faith: Psychotherapy and Pureland

Since the time of the Buddha people have looked to Buddhism as a source of salvation from their unhappiness and confusion. In the modern age, psychotherapy has become a route which many people choose to help them face and move beyond their personal suffering. Not surprisingly many Western therapists tend to gravitate towards Buddhist ideas and, conversely, Buddhists are often interested in exploring how their faith…

I wrote this article for Running Tide back in January but it didnt get published and as Running Tide has only just come out, things had obviously moved on. I'm putting it up here because it seems like a pity to waste a good article - or even a mediocre one!
