The Collaborative Practice of Buddhist Psychotherapy with Live Demonstrations

April 10, 2013 Presenter: Maurits Kwee (Taos, New Mexico, USA)

Participants are invited to discover Buddhist Psychotherapy in the framework of Relational Buddhism which is aka “Karma Transformation”. This approach aims at changing self-conversation, one’s self-talk and other-talk, debouching in disturbing moods and scenarios of interpersonal emotional expression. The emphasis is on transforming intentional action, i.e. karmic self-dialogue, which is viewed as interdependently related to motives, feelings, and “relational being”. The workshop will cover and explain a number of pan-Buddhist psychological core concepts and analogous cognitive-behavioral terms for an adequate understanding of the skillful art of zeroing in to clients’ issues. In the context of a joint exploration which is (inter)action-oriented by demonstrating the collaborative practice of Karma Transformation through dealing with volunteers’ inputs, there will be plenty of room for Q&A, deliberation, and discussion during the day. The basic idea for the gathering is to share, embody, and infuse life in what is written in the book Psychotherapyby Karma Transformation: Relational Buddhism and Rational Practice to be found at www.taosinstitute.net/worldshare-books (downloadable free-of-charge or sent in pdf).
