Writing to people who have enquired about starting the Tariki Psychotherapy Training Course in February to let them know about the possibility of an induction day subject to demand, so Im posting most of the message here as well in case anyone else out there is thinking of applying.
As you probably know we usually run an introductory/induction weekend in September for new students. Last year we also arranged an induction day prior to the February course block because there were a number of students starting the programme at that time. If there are enough people thinking of enrolling this February we may do the same. It is not essential to attend an induction day before starting the course, but students have found it helpful in the past in orientating them to the programme and giving them a basic framework for understanding the Buddhist Psychology and other-centred models. You can attend the day as a stand alone even if you do not plan to enrol at this point on the course. It is a way of finding out in more depth about our way of presenting Buddhist counselling and psychotherapy.
At this stage it would be useful to know if you have an interest in joining the programme this spring (or later) and also whether you would be able to attend an induction day if we arranged one on February 13th.
Whether or not we run this day, it will be possible to start the course with the February course block. As you will see the block focuses on the family and the group as conditions for people's psychology - a topic we can all relate to! it will include basic skills teaching as well as opportunities to reflect on the topic from a number of perspectives. If you are joining the programme at this block we ask you to start with the first weekend which will include introductory material for new students, but you are welcome to do the entire block if you so wish or can take one or more sections.
If you do plan to join the course (or even if you are wavering and want to come to the induction day) please do let us know and complete an application form (attached) as soon as possible in the new year - it can take time to get references back and so on so it is good to have this in good time. You will also find the form and other downloads including the course handbook on our web site at www.buddhistpsychology.info (scroll down the front page for links)
If you have any queries regarding the course or application process, please feel free to contact me. In the meantime, I wish you a very happy festive season. Email for enquiries: courses@tarikitrust.org

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!
