Process psychotherapy has its roots in the psychology, philosophy and
contemplative practices developed during two thousand years of Buddhist
enquiry. This knowledge base is integrated with western psychotherapy
skills and developmental theories.
Process is a contemplative approach of exploring how we are in our present
experience and the way that one's past conditioning and relationships
act to shape new life events.
psychotherapeutic relationship is the context within which this exploration
is undertaken. Through this mutual enquiry there is the potential for
suffering to be transformed, thus allowing greater and more conscious
choice in our daily lives. Becoming more fully present in each moment
brings us into direct contact with those places where we are fragmented,
split and disconnected. Through bringing more of these processes into
awareness, we can work with spiritual, physical, psychological and energetic
layers of experience, as they emerge in embodiment and come more deeply
into contact with the illimitable qualitities of compassion, loving
kindness, sympathetic joy and equanimity which arise naturally from
the Core state.
