SACRED PSYCHOLOGY, FOUNDATIONS OF SPIRITUAL COUNSELING
Who Is The Healer? What Needs To Be Healed?
Combining psychological and spiritual understanding, we look at the role of a Spiritual Counselor, how it differs from that of a therapist. As we explore the essence of a healing relationship, we also look deeply at the true causes of suffering.
What is it that needs to be healed? How does healing happen? Information, tools and skills are provided, along with exercises so that the student can integrate the material into their everyday lives. In this program Counselors also train in their own authenticity, which is the greatest source of healing for all.
ZEN PLAY – ACTING ZEN
Making Your Life Into A Zen Koan
Problems that are inscrutable and do not have logical answers are called Zen Koans. They do not yield to reason and cannot be approached in the usual way.
Our lives as well, present all kinds of inscrutable problems. We do not view them as koans though, and much of the time end up stumped, caught in the same old responses again and again.
Zen Play, Making Your Life Into A Zen Koan shows how to turn our problems into koans, and experience them in a totally different way. As we do so, life stops becoming one problem after another but turns into a joyous adventure to enjoy.
In this playful, interactive workshop we explore the heart of working with a Zen Koan. Then we discover how to approach our problems the same way. The workshop includes instruction, role playing and discussion. Not only do fixation and helplessness dissolve, but new possibilities arise all by themselves.
