Event Description

Naikan for the Planet

Sunday June 7th: 10.00-5.00 

Naikan is a Japanese therapeutic approach involving a process of life-review. Derived originally from a practice used in training Buddhist priests, it focuses on parental relationships, often revealing feelings of gratitude and regret. Naikan has been adapted to one-to-one therapy and groups in Japan and the West. This day retreat will use the three primary Naikan questions to explore our relationship to the planet, the ultimate parent of humanity, asking: What has the Earth done for me? What have I done in return? What troubles have I caused the Earth? Using solitary reflection in nature, it will conclude with shared celebration. The retreat will be run using the Zoom platform. This can easily be downloaded once you receive your invitation, but you will need internet connection to participate. It will include guided meditation sessions, time for personal reflection and sharing time. You will receive instructions for the retreat ahead of the date so please book in good time.

Suggested donation for this retreat £20-£10 which can be made by PayPal

(no charge for those who are not registered as Ten Directions students)

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!
