Event Description

A training workshop with Caroline Brazier and Bo Gort

Buddhist psychology suggests that we experience the world with a colouration added by our personal histories and experiences. We can become trapped by expectations and narrowness of view and fail to relate to others around us (human and otherwise) in a real way. In other-centred working we try to expand the world view and relate more authentically to those others. This other-centred methodology lends itself particularly to the use of creative methods. Art, role play or narrative work; movement, mythological exploration or drama; writing, music or body awareness all provide ways to explore the world of the self, but also to transcend it and investigate new directions. In creating a piece of art or a sculpt, a third element is brought into the therapy room which then becomes an ‘other’ which therapist and client can relate to and investigate. Fresh viewpoints become possible and the client is challenged to explore spontaneity and look at other perspectives. In particular, creative methods form a basis upon which role reversal can be used. This method in particular is significant in other-centred work because it gives the client direct experience of the ‘other’ viewpoint.

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!
