Second annual Contemplative Psychology Intensive in Phuket

Getting ready for our second annual Contemplative Psychology Retreat Intensive this week at Amanpuri Villas in Phuket. It’s not at all a bad place to have a retreat.

Ten graduate students from The Chicago School of Professional Psychology will learn the foundations of Ashtanga yoga, shamatha sitting meditation, and practices of loving kindness and compassion, all with the view of applying these tools to the therapeutic process.

Though I think staying in such a gorgeous environment is itself therapy. I’m already healed.

  1. Dear friends,
    Are you familiar with the seminal books on contemplative psychology written by Dr. Han F. de Wit and published at Duquesne University Press, Pittsburgh? Titels: “Contemplative Psychology” (1991) and “The spiritual Path; An introduction to the Psychology of the Spiritual Traditions” (1999).
    The former was written at the Naropa University as a visiting professor.
    Good luck with your program!
