Tharakesh Palanisamy commented on David Brazier's blog post MY MEDICAL CONDITION
"Hi Dharmvidya, So sorry to hear about your medical condition. I wonder if an inquiry to the I Ching would shed some light on the situation. Sending you good wishes!"

"Yes good point. I'm interested in improving the quality of my work as a therapist. Do you have a schedule posted somewhere that lists when and where you will be doing workshops like the one you just finished in Korea ? Thank you."

""Life Coaching" is in vogue now...not sure what that it is, but they advertise themselves as "different from therapy" with "quicker results". It's a bit sad really to manipulate clients in this way in my opinion."

"The topic of "prisons" and "efforts to control" stood out to me in this posting. Sometimes "prisons" seem beyond our control and those can be especially painful. I'm thinking of a client who had a terminal illness…"

"Hi Dharmavidya, Can you say more about "It is not good therapy to reassure or try to sooth the pain away". It seems like some of that happens naturally on the part of the therapist, whether they are consciously trying to or not ? Thank you."

QUESTIONS IN THE SAND

In Dharma practice, questions are very important. Most instances of enlightenment recorded occur in dialogues and most of these start from a question. This is how the Dharma is given and received. It is not just a matter of getting the right answer. The very act of asking and answering is a practice. Here I will offer answers to the questions that I get asked from time to time and so we shall meet.See More

"Thank you Dharmavidya for your response. The client I am thinking about is a 21yo woman who is feeling emptiness in the way that you suggested, which is a "fear of ending up alone with nobody that cares". The client reports growing up with…"

Tharakesh Palanisamy replied to David Brazier's discussion SPACE THERAPY in the group THERAPEUTAE
"When a client talks about having a "void" or feeling of "emptiness" in their life, it seems like there is too much space. How would a therapist work with that from a Buddhist standpoint ?"

MY MEDICAL CONDITION

Posted by David Brazier on June 26, 2019 at 18:04 6 Comments

My medical condition continues to be a mystery. It is clear that I do not have any of the big nasty things - brain tumour, cracked skull, stroke, etc - as these have been ruled out by MRI investigation. Nonetheless I continue to have persistent, continuous head pain that varies in intensity and I become exhausted by the least effort so that I am functioning like an invalid incapable of doing very much. There is always a possibility that the whole syndrome is a…

Grace.

Posted by Dayamay Dunsby on June 2, 2019 at 1:02 4 Comments

“Do we know what it means to be struck by grace? It does not mean that we suddenly believe that God exists, or that Jesus is the saviour, or that the Bible contains the truth. Grace strikes us when we are in great pain and restlessness. It strikes us when we walk through the dark Valley of a meaningless and empty life. It strikes us when we feel that our separation is deeper than usual, because we have violated another life, a life which we loved, or from which we were estranged. It strikes us… Continue

This is a short video of a Buddhist monk and his family. 

It raised questions on parenting and Buddhism - does detachment (or perhaps quietism), as practiced here, lead to demotivation and disengagement with the world around one?

His children find the detachment practised by the monk disquieting. They appreciate the irony of detachment, which is supposed to…

I have recently been made aware of a practice known as Ho’ponopono. Ho’ponopono is an ancient Hawaiian healing practice, based on universal forgiveness, that was rediscovered and popularised in the 80s. A man called Joe Vitale(Hawaiian I think)  became enchanted by the practice after his daughter was healed from an…
