Core Principles of Meditation for Therapy: Improving the Outcome of Psychotherapeutic Treatment provides the multi-modal strategies and tools therapists need to guide their clients' adaptations of meditation into their lives. Complete with text, audio, and video content, this package introduces a variety of meditation routines and explains how, when, and why each technique should be used to reach specific goals. The availability of audio and video, as well as print, allows the therapist to customize each presentation to the client and the presenting problem. Meditation simultaneously engenders both relaxation and alertness, and regular practice can change brain function to permanently improve internal sensing. The three major meditation methods—focus (Yoga meditations and postures), open-focus (Mindfulness), and no-focus (clearing the mind Zen and Taoist flow)—are best suited to different kinds of problems. Core Principles of Meditation for Therapy explains them all, and details the most practical applications of each. This guide matches the meditation type to a therapeutic goal. Consistent with the positive psychology movement, meditative practice puts people on a positive path and offers distinctive techniques to actualize change. This package's multi-sensory approach makes it adaptable to the needs of therapists and clients, supports their initiation, practice, and mastery of meditation for improved mental health. For clinicians seeking to integrate meditation and therapy, Core Principles of Meditation for Therapy is a complete guide to both theory and practice.

Mastering the Core Teachings of the Buddha

The very idea that Buddhist teachings can be mastered will arouse controversy within Buddhist circles. Even so, Daniel Ingram insists that enlightenment is an attainable goal, once our fanciful notions of it are stripped away, and we have learned to use meditation as a method for examining reality rather than an opportunity to wallow in self-absorbed mind-noise. This book sets out concisely the difference between concentration-based and insight meditation. This is a revised and much expanded edition.

This is the second volume of essays and articles on enlightenment and the Enlightenment Intensive from the archive of Charles Berner. It spans the years from 1969 through 2005. I heard Berner say many times that his understanding of Truth evolved as his meditation experiences unfolded. He would advise "If you want to understand what I understands now, then you should look to my latest writings." These essays are placed in a chronological order so you can appreciate the evolution of his understanding. The book begins with a Forward written by Edrid who began his studies with Berner in the early 1960's. Edrid's first-hand recollections of Berner's universe and the beginning formulation of the Enlightenment Intensive is insightful and revealing. Chapter 1 is an article that first appeared in 1969. It is one of Berner's earliest writings on the subject of self enlightenment and the Enlightenment Intensive. Chapter 2, What Is and Is Not Enlightenment, was the first chapter of The Transmission of Truth, published in 1977. Chapter 3 is a first-person account of the experiences of a fictitious individual, Alan B. Dow, who attends an Enlightenment Intensive for the first time. Chapter 4, entitled, Charles in Enlightenment Land was originally a lecture given at an Enlightenment Intensive in the 1970's. Chapter 5, Levels of Enlightenment and Advice On How To Do The Enlightenment Technique, was also a lecture that Berner gave during a long Enlightenment Intensive in the early 1970's. Enlightenment is the title of Chapter 6. It is excerpted from the 2005 book, Consciousness of Truth. Bill Savoie wrote the final chapter entitled, About Charles Berner. In his essay Bill shares his experience and insights about Charles Berner and those early days from which the Enlightenment Intensive was formed.

Being mindful can help people feel calmer and more fully alive. Mindfulness and Mental Health examines other effects it can also have and presents a significant new model of how mindful awareness may influence different forms of mental suffering. The book assesses current understandings of what mindfulness is, what it leads to, and how and when it can help. It looks at the roots and significance of mindfulness in Buddhist psychology and at the strengths and limitations of recent scientific investigations. A survey of relationships between mindfulness practice and established forms of psychotherapy introduces evaluations of recent clinical work where mindfulness has been used with a wide range of psychological disorders. As well as considering current 'mindfulness-based' therapies, future directions for the development of new techniques, their selection, how they are used and implications for professional training are discussed. Finally, mindfulness' future contribution to positive mental health is examined with reference to vulnerability to illness, adaptation and the flourishing of hidden capabilities. As a cogent summary of the field that addresses many key questions, Mindfulness and Mental Health is likely to help therapists from all professional backgrounds in getting to grips with developments that are becoming too significant to ignore.

Self-Help, Inspiration Do You Want More? There are multiple reasons behind stripping everything off and returning to the basics. Living a life of simplicity is not about living poorly, it is about living richly and in focus. When we complicate our lives with material objects, and then strive and stress to maintain those objects, we find that life can become chaotic, busy, lonely, and unfulfilling, which can lead to depression and discontent. When you seek and find clarity, everything around you turns into an opportunity. When you ask, you will receive if you are clear. The minimalist lifestyle offers freedom, peace, & ease. With this book: * You'll learn about the primitive brain and how it rewards you for things that it thinks it needs, thus forming habits that do not serve you. * You'll begin to see the many rewards that come from minimalism and that you are the architect of everything that happens in your life. * You'll discover why the thought of more is so attractive, and learn what you need to do to simplify your life. * You'll see that everything you truly want is already at your disposal - all you have to do is ask in the right way, with clarity. Minimalism leads to immense clarity.
