Psychotherapy from a Buddha’s-Eye View with Bruce Tift, MA, LMFT
October 20–22, 2006
Western psychological therapies tend to hold a developmental view—that working through our history is the ground of self-acceptance and inner peace. In the Buddhist view, self-acceptance is possible right now; through practices of immediacy we find that there is nothing that requires healing or fixing. Join us to explore the integration of these two approaches, which greatly enriches the practice and results of clinical work. This program is for therapists, meditators, practitioners, therapy clients and anyone else interested in integrating meditation and psychotherapy.
Bruce Tift has been in private practice since 1979 and has taught at Naropa University since 1982. A practitioner of Vajrayana Buddhism for more than 25 years, he lives in Boulder, Colorado.
