Therapy Gifts from Heidegger and the Buddha

Psychotherapy as a Healing Process - This 2-day workshop explores how the teachings of The Buddha, the philosohy of Heidegger, and existential therapy places the client at the centre of the therapeutic alliance.

             Belinda Khong, Psychologist, Author, Lecturer Macquarie University

WHEN:            1st & 2nd November 2013 (Saturday and Sunday)

WHERE:          Sydney

COST:             $450 / $420 Early bird

HOSTED by    The Centre for Existential Practice

Participants will be taken on a journey to explore the limitations of the current therapeutic focus on symptoms, diagnostic labels, pharmacological interventions and “cure”. Our journey will also consider how The Buddha’s teachings, Heidegger’s philosophy and existential therapy can help provide therapists with the foundations for understanding their role as a “co-journeyer” with the client, the point from which therapy truly can become a “healing” process.

The 2 days will incorporate discussion of clinical vignettes, experiential meditation and mindfulness exercises. Participants are encouraged to wear comfortable clothing and bring cushions or yoga mats.

Belinda Khong has researched and published extensively on the integration of Western and Eastern approaches to psychology. She facilitates workshops in Australia and internationally on the integration of meditation, mindfulness and psychotherapy.
