Buddhist Psychology Affinity Group
Second Monday of Each Month, 6:30 pm – 8:00 pm
The First Unitarian Universalist Church, 4190 Front St., San Diego
The Insight San Diego Buddhist Psychology Affinity Group is offered as a resource to anyone interested in deepening their understanding of Buddhist psychology. The focus is an exploration of the Abhidhamma from which the secular mindfulness movement emerged. The group also provides an opportunity for participants to explore the relevance of Buddhist psychology and Abhidhamma teachings to their own clinical practice of psychotherapy, or teaching of mindfulness-based interventions such as MBSR.We are currently using Thoughts without a Thinker: Psychotherapy from a Buddhist Perspective by Mark Epstein, M.D., as our discussion guide. The book is available on Amazon.com here.
The group is facilitated by Jacquelyn Schwartz, LMFT. Jacqui can be reached at email@example.com
The Buddhist Psychology Affinity Group meets monthly on the second Monday evening of each month, in room 323 from 6:30pm-8:00pm.
Our meetings begin with a 15-minute silent meditation. However, the room will be available at 6pm for anyone that would like to begin their meditation prior to the start of the meeting.
