International Buddhist Psychology Conference
5 - 8 September 2019
International Buddhist Psychology Conference No Pearl without Grit:
The psychology of suffering and awakening 5-8 September 2019, Netherlands
NO PEARL WITHOUT GRIT: The psychology of suffering and awakening Buddhism and therapy are both centrally concerned with the problem of suffering and the challenges involved in arriving at a liberation of mind and an awakening to new possibilities. In addressing this theme we can share many perspectives, methods and theories that seek to bring together the insights of Buddhism with the anxieties, tragedies and opportunities of modern life. Following upon the first two successful conferences, this meeting will be a time for learning, sharing, reflection and building connections.
The last conference included many moving moments as well as deeply informative presentations. The balance between serious engagement and informal discussion in this style of meeting provides a rich compost for new growth, connection and stimulation.
