Class Series: Buddhism for Health Professionals

An online class for professionals in the Mental Health Care Industry.

The Buddhist path and Western therapies have similar goals: to alleviate our unhappiness, to engage in practices that cultivate sanity and to understand the roots of all suffering. This course focuses on the Buddhist teachings and meditation practices that may enrich our Western understanding of mind and mental health.

Each class will consist of lecture, meditation practice and group discussion.

Course Topics:

Neurosis: what causes suffering and how is it resolved
Meditation: different techniques and their uses
Karma: working with habitual patterns of thought, emotion and behavior
The emotions: their nature and how they are transformed into wisdom
The Six Realms: six psychological styles of neurosis
