This nine-disc DVD set chronicles the seven-day seminar retreat held
at Santa Barbara’s historic Old Mission in February 2008.
The retreat was specifically designed for clinial psychologists, researchers, and other
mental healthcare professionals interested in learning how various Buddhist
contemplative practices can help to alleviate mental problems and enhance
mental health and balance.
The daily teachings, discussions, and guided meditatiions focus on theories
and practices pertaining to the cultivation of attention, metacognition,
empathy, emotional regulation, altruism, and ethics.
Drawing largely from the experiential rather than theological aspects of
Buddhism, the material presented in this DVD set is accessible to both
religious and non-religious participants.
