Description

In the last few years, most clinicians have felt a shift not only in the larger culture but the therapy room as well. With so much suffering and isolation surfaced by the pandemic and other large-scale injustices, the idea of healing in therapy has moved beyond a focus on the individual and, in many ways, beyond traditional clinical practice. How can we promote a sense of belonging and address core issues of loneliness outside of a individualized, pathologized approach? How can we think about bringing “spirituality,” however we conceive of it, into ethical clinical practice as a means of connection? And how can we begin to respond to the rippling effects of collective trauma? This panel recording will explore:

  • How prosocial affects like love and compassion can expand our capacity for social openness and connection, and what this means for clinical practice
  • What kinds of training can help clinicians unlearn implicit biases that may get in the way of accurate empathy for the lived experience of others
  • The ways in which our estrangement from nature affects our sense of belonging and contributes to environmental stress
  • How inequity undermines well-being no matter which side of the inequity people are on

Rev. angel Kyodo williams
Called “the most intriguing African American Buddhist,” Rev. angel Kyodo williams is an author, activist, master trainer, and founder of The Center of Transformative Change. Her acclaimed first book, Being Black: Zen and the Art of Living with Fearlessness and Grace, was hailed by Alice Walker as “an act of love.” Her newest work, Radical Dharma: Talking Race, Love & Liberation, is igniting long-overdue conversations about waking up to what hinders the liberation of self and society.

In a country like the US, where people have wildly different backgrounds, our human need to be with one another and in community is tested again and again. Over the centuries, the idea of who among us truly belongs, and, by extension, who we can be, who we can love – even who we can agree with – has been painfully communicated through our laws, culture and politics. The result? Separation reigns, conflicting with our innate sense of connection and compassion, and corrupting the essence of true belonging we all yearn for in this life.
