Partners in Integration: workshop and book signing
with author Dr. Joseph Bobrow, Roshi
In this workshop we will focus on the practice and principles of Zen and psychotherapy. We will explore how Buddhist principles and practices, in concert with recent findings from human development, brain research and psychotherapy, offer an integrated view of liberation in which spiritual development on the one hand and emotional growth and personal work on the other “interare.” Such an integrative perspective may help us realize, enjoy and embody the Buddhist principles that motivate and inspire us.
Finally, Dr. Bobrow will also speak on the role of community in transforming human suffering including his work with veterans and families impacted by war-related trauma as founder of the Coming Home Project for Iraq and Afghanistan veterans.
Includes meditation practice, experiential exercises and discussion.
The event, free and open to the public, will be held at the Jodo Shinshu Center in Berkeley, Ca.
An option to donate to Deep Streams Zen Institute will be accepted at the door.
