  • "Buddhism & Psychology: The Art of Counseling" sponsored by Naropa University and FACES. Paid Member

    The Inaugural Boulder Institute on Mindfulness "Buddhism & Psychology: The Art of Counseling" will take place July 28-31 at the St. Julien Hotel in Boulder, Colorado. Speakers will include Daniel J. Siegel, MD; Jack KornField, PhD; and Karen Kissel Wegela, PhD. This conference highlights an emerging trend in the field of psychotherapy: the inclusion of mindfulness in counseling. National conversation in the field shows that mindfulness awareness has already been proven to enhance psychotherapy. Current research shows that the benefits of mindfulness can help us explore aspects of ourselves that are not ordinarily noticed, experiences that occur below our level of consciousness.
