Buddhist practice and the Person-centred Approach


I am currently looking for participants/co-researchers for my MA research study on Buddhist practice and the Person-centred Approach.  Ideally, I would like participants who call themselves 'person-centred' or humanistic.  The research questions will be based on therapist's experience of being present (or not) in meditation and in the therapy room (with an emphasis on 'experience').

Interviews can be done via Skype or face-to-face.  I have ethical approval from my…

Eighty years pass like a cloud...

I just read something I would like to share:

"If people are quiet, they can be quiet anywhere. If people aren't quiet, they won't be quiet here. Everything depends on you. Life is transient, like a flash of lightening or a dream. Eighty years pass like a cloud. We're born, and then we die. But before we receive this form, we had another face, our original face. We can't see it with our eyes. We can only know it with our wisdom.…

Ian sitting with friends

A quick note to say that the weekend retreat "Sitting with Friends" just finished and it went very well, indeed. There were only five of us in total--- Aramati, Debbie, Lauren, Ian and myself---  but I think everybody found it was a very comfortable and mutually supportive group. Ian deserves the lion's share of praise for this, not only for stepping in for Tom who wasn't able to make it, but also for bringing his own unique spirit of compassion and humility to his position as retreat…

Grounded in Faith: Psychotherapy and Pureland - paper presented at European Shin Conference 2012

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!
