Re: CBT, religious faith, current events....

Re: Isn't mindfulness meditation exposure therapy

Thank you for your explanation, it is very clear to me now. Since I do not come from your tradition, I did not understand completely what you were writing about. It fascinates me that without using...

Re: Isn't mindfulness meditation exposure therapy

No, I really don't practice Buddhist meditation. I learned meditation from a New Age healer who uses imagery, sound, movement, moving energy and a focus on chakras. Recently, I have been meditating...

Re: Isn't mindfulness meditation exposure therapy

I'm glad you appreciated my response. It is my experience, and accurate for me. I can't speak for everyone. I do not practice the Buddhist technique. I actually find it emotionally painful, and...

Re: Schema Therapy Article

Thanks, I finally read the article, and I moved onto Jeffery Young's book. I don't have a copy right in front of me. So, I may not quite present this correctly.

I have a question. Am I...

Re: Isn't mindfulness meditation exposure therapy

"Isn't enlightenment breaking through the veil formed from our Schemas and their projected conceptualizations."

Yes. But, all that I write is from my experience of samadhi.

Re: Isn't mindfulness meditation exposure therapy

Thank you for responding. It's nice to get some validation for my experience. I think that the various traditions have different words for the experience, as well as slightly different expectations...

Re: When is Meditation Contraindicated?

I think that if you look to early posted comments you will find that Dr. Spira has addressed this question. What you don't ask is if there are different types of meditations that might be used for...

Re: Buddhist Psychology and Cognitive Behavior Therapy: Strange Bed Fellows?
