6 Week Foundations of Buddhism
for Clinicians Course

Thursdays starting  January 26th 

7-8:30 PM PST



Mindfulness and several other principles with Buddhist origins have been woven into modern day healthcare, especially in Mental Health. 

Terms like Metta (loving-kindness), Vipassana (insight), Sati (mindfulness) etc., are commonly used. DBT, CBT and other modalities are heavily influenced by core Buddhist underpinnings.

For example, The Four Foundations of Mindfulness, as outlined in the  Satipatthana Sutta  have been instrumental in providing a framework for several hybrid modalities and secular courses.

In this course we offer an introduction to the major tenets that have now become part of western healthcare.

We will dive into: 

- Origins

- Traditional uses

- How these teaching have been integrated

- Subtleties that may have been lost in translation 

Expect to learn: 

- Key Suttas (the primary text)

- Big picture- How do the pieces fit with each-other 

- The difference between religious aspect of Buddhism 

and Buddhist psychology 

-  A brief history of Buddhism in the west as it applies to healthcare

- Deepen your understanding of key elements
