Dr. Mark Unno will lecture on “Buddhism, Mindfulness, & Psychotherapy” at the Buddhist Study Center on Saturday, March 25, from 10 a.m. – 12:00 p.m.

The workshop description is as follows:

As approaches to cultivating and refining the inner experience of mind, Buddhism, mindfulness, and psychotherapy share common ground. In fact, what has come to be known as mindfulness in secular society has clear Buddhist roots, and mindfulness and psychotherapy often overlap in practice as well as theory, as they do with Buddhism.

In this workshop, we explore the similarities, differences, intersections, and synthesis of these diverse practices of the mind, and their implications.

Workshop participants will be encouraged to share their own perspectives and questions and Rev. Dr. Mark Unno will share his from the perspective of his experiences in all of these arenas including Zen, Shin Buddhism, and Jungian psychotherapy.

Donations accepted, refreshments provided.
