Therapy & Awakening — A New and Integrated Model
This event starts in:
This Integral Life Experience is only available to the supporting members
Keith Martin-Smith will be speaking to Chad Bennett, a psychotherapist and ordained Zen priest. This wide-ranging talk will discuss why our existing ideas of therapy are limited, and keep us bound inside of the therapeutic relationship, unable to learn the skills necessary to continue our own growth towards psychological wholeness.
They will also talk about the necessity of “Waking Up” practices as a vital part of any therapeutic practice, and how the very idea of liberation needs to be understood as awakening through the ego, not from it.
Keith and Chad will talk about how it seems more and more clear that to truly awaken from suffering, a new kind of therapy and a new kind of meditation must be practiced — and that they must be done together. This talk will discuss how to make this possible for yourself.
Join this wide-ranging and deep dive into Waking Up, Cleaning Up, and Growing Up.
Keith Martin-Smith is author of When the Buddha Needs Therapy.
