Inspirational Buddhist Psych Course

Postby sherwood » Thu Jan 09, 2014 7:57 am

Hi my name is Tara(it actually is)

As of late the name has become very fitting as I have started a Buddhist Psychotherapy course at Sophia College of Counselling. I have been fascinated by the concepts in Buddhism, particularly how the course applies them to use techniques such as meditation to combat pain, stress, grief and loss and many more.
I also recently lost both of my grandmothers, I have found the principles to be very helpful in letting go of attachment and making me understand how to cope with the grief and loss.

[color=#0000FF]I strongly recommend this course to any of you out there! And am also keen to hear about other inspirational readings people recommend.[/color] :twothumbsup:

Hi and welcome sherwood. :hi: Sorry for your recent loss.

I have friends who completed this course (although some years ago) when it was offered in Melbourne. Enjoy!

Hello Tara, action mother of the Buddhas of the three times!

I would recommend Shantideva's Guide to the Bodhisattva's Way of Life. One of the most inspirational texts I've ever read and is highly recommended by HHDL and almost any master I have met or heard.

Im not sure if I did it right but I have attached a PDF of the text, if this does not work send me a PM.
May the teachings of the Lion Amongst Men, spread far and wide and may all beings be liberated from this ocean of samsaric suffering!

[The extension pdf has been deactivated and can no longer be displayed.]

ཨོཾ Through blood, sweat and tears the solution appears: The pride needs defended by a Lion! ཨོཾ
