There is a great deal to learn from the ancient wisdom of Buddhism and the relatively new field of psychotherapy. In this retreat, Mark Epstein, a practicing psychotherapist and Buddhist, looks to synthesize the two in an attempt to cover the pitfalls that we can fall into as a result of following either one dogmatically.
Mark draws from contemporary and traditional stories that bring a fresh perspective to current issues we are facing as Buddhist practitioners in the West, looking especially at how to deal with negative emotions and our tendency to avoid or side-step them in our practice.
