"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."

"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 ?"
