Mindfulness, Wisdom, and Compassion in Psychotherapy Getting Beyond I, Me, and Mine

For psychotherapists, human-service professionals, and others interested in personal development.

When we’re in pain, what we look for in a psychotherapist, teacher, or healer isn’t just academic knowledge or training. Rather, we seek out people who are wise, compassionate, and able to supportively enter into our suffering with us. So how might we develop these qualities in ourselves? And what would psychotherapy in particular look like if wisdom, compassion, and reduced self-preoccupation were actually goals of treatment?

Join Ronald D. Siegel as he teaches

  • What wisdom and compassion are and how they can be cultivated to support well-being

  • Ways to move beyond concerns about personal comfort and self-esteem to find greater freedom and ease, both inside and outside the clinical hour.
