Buddhism: The Most Religious of the Psychologies & Most Psychological of the Religions with Mark Taylor
About the Message: There is with Buddhism a unique day-to-day “nuts-n-bolts” practicality that is useful for Buddhists and non Buddhists alike. In one of his books, the 14th Dali Lama said that if there were a core Buddhist teaching that could be proven to be wrong, that that teaching should be cast aside and a new one envisioned to replace it … or perhaps nothing at all.
As a former psychotherapist, Mark L. Taylor MA found there were various teachings, perspectives and skills from Buddhist psychology that were helpful to many clients from a wide variety of backgrounds, levels of education and presenting issues. In his Sunday presentation Mark will present several that can be helpful in staying centered – or near-centered – in the midst of such challenging and threatening times.
