Fee:          $40 for each one and one-half hour session
Drawing from Buddhist and Psychoanalytic principles, this group is open
to all mental health practitioners who are interested in integrating spiritual
and clinical practices in a no-nonsense, non-sectarian and hands on way
by attending to the present moment.  We will engage in a supportive and
experiential approach to working with those who seek our help.  Each
weekly group session will include a period of silent meditation, discussion
and intensive group supervision based on processing the transference
and countertransference dynamic and its emergence in the group
process.
