Event Description

A training workshop with Caroline Brazier and Bo Gort

In modern Western society, we place a high value of knowledge. This can lead us to assume that it is possible to understand everything and that such understanding will bring with it the capacity to control our lives more. Buddhism on the other hand understands that, whilst the pursuit of deep understanding can be an important part of the personal journey, it is vital to our maturity as human beings to recognise that ultimately there is a great deal which we do not know. When we think we know, we cease to listen and explore. We unconsciously limit our frame of living to the familiar where we feel safe. We rely on old formulae to predict situations, even though these may be out of date. In therapy, discovering the capacity to be with clients in a state of not knowing is vital if we are going to be truly open to those we work with. It also conveys to them a trust in the process of stepping beyond the fixities of habitual views. When we recognise that we do not know, we listen and observe more carefully. We discover faith in life processes beyond ourselves. Not knowing allows us to find a greater wisdom, which is open to fresh possibilities in every moment

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…


Running Tide Article

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!
