Applied Buddhist Psychology 1: Entering the Stream

The Applied Buddhist Psychology 1 workshop provides an introduction to Buddhist concepts and practices to help foster a sense of self-acceptance, inner peace, and belonging. Counseling professionals will find this course useful for working with their clients.

This course will:

• Offer an overview of some key Buddhist concepts with an emphasis on how they can be applied to healing psychological imbalance including the Three Jewels: Buddha, Dharma, Sangha, the Four Noble Truths, impermanence, interdependent arising, karma, refuge, and Buddha nature.
• Introduce samatha meditation techniques and support students in establishing themselves in regular practice
• Address questions that arise for students in meditation practice

You will find this workshop especially beneficial if you:

• Want support in establishing or maintaining a contemplative practice tested by tradition but not bound to it.

• Are familiar with Buddhist concepts, and understand them intellectually, but are not sure how to apply them in day-to-day situations.
