Keith Martin-Smith speaks with Chad Bennett, a psychotherapist and ordained Zen priest, about why our existing ideas of therapy are often limited and keep us bound inside of the therapeutic relationship, unable to learn the skills necessary to continue our own growth towards psychological wholeness.
Rev. Zenho Chad Bennett, MA, LPC is an Integral Zen Priest that has been practicing meditation since 2003, spending several years in Thailand and India doing extended periods of Therevadan retreat. He returned to the USA for a master’s degree in Transpersonal Counseling Psychology at Naropa University and his teaching style is practical and experiential, stressing the importance of healthy holistic character development all the way up and down the evolutionary spiral. Chad is currently in private practice as a psychotherapist and spiritual counselor and leads the Integral Zen Denver/Boulder community as a senior student of Doshin Roshi.
