Narcissism versus Compassion Mind
|Presenters||Dr Jacqui Dodds, MAASW|
|Description||The elucidation of the Buddhist notion of non-self and the comparative relationship with the notion of self that is central to much of western psychological models. The implications of the notion of self and of non-self are examined in their place in the therapeutic context as well as in personal Buddhist practice.
Learn the Buddhist practices for freeing the mind from these states of clinging and attachment to permanence.
|About the presenter(s)||Dr Jacqui Dodds has a solid background in Buddhist teachings, Psychotherapy, Meditation, Palliative Care and Work with Cancer Patients, as well as counselling both privately and within a Western Australian Community Mental Health team. She has been a committed meditation practitioner for 27 years and a psychotherapist, researcher and social worker for 17 years.
Her doctoral research explored how the meanings people made of cancer effected their experience of suffering and well being, and demonstrated how these meanings were influenced by mainstream biomedical and alternative holistic healing and natural healing assumptions about cancer, in particular, and illness in general.
