Therapy and Religion

Once upon a time Therapy and Religion were considered to be separate compartments of the human experience. But now, more and more, we are beginning to see a mixing and blending of religion/spirituality and therapy. Our guest this week has much to share with us about this phenomenon particularly as it relates to two things: 1) the power of relationship and 2) psychoanalysis and Buddhism. Pilar Jennings, PhD is the author of Mixing Minds: The Power of Relationship in Psychoanalysis and Buddhism. Obviously relationship is at the center of both the practice of religion and the practice of therapy. But how do we engage both practices in a therapeutic setting without reducing either to the terms of the other? Can we legitimately explore both in the therapeutic setting trusting that neither will be reduced to the terms of the other? Do you ever wonder if your psychological issues are really spiritual or vice versa? Tune in, you might just walk away with your answer.

Enlightening your Mind, Opening your Heart

The Western Lama, as he is affectionately called by the Dalai Lama, Surya Das is a sought-after speaker and teacher. We are honored to have the opportunity to talk to him this week as he assists us in the awakening process. A published poet, translator and chantmaster, with over 35 years of study in Zen, vipassana, yoga and Tibetan Buddhism with the great masters of Asia, including the Dalai Lama’s own teachers, the authorized Lama has also authored several books, his most recent: “The Mind is Mightier Than the Sword: Enlightening the Mind, Opening The Heart.” Founder of many Buddhist and spiritual organizations that help to increase our global awareness, his list of accomplishments is simply too great to mention here but suffice it to say that you are going to get the chance to hear from him directly as we discuss the essential meaning of life and the process of waking up. Do NOT miss this show.
