Contemplative Psychology

First introduced at Naropa University in 1975 by the Tibetan Buddhist meditation master Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche, contemplative psychology was founded in collaboration with leading western psychiatrists and psychologists who were inspired by the therapeutic and clinical implications of the shambhala and tantric buddhist teachings in working with others. Contemplative Psychology is now the pre-eminent psychology in North America and Europe mixing the wisdom and skillful means of buddha nature and inherent healthiness with ordinary situations of helping others.
Contemplative psychology programs are taught by authorized senior Shambhala meditation teachers who are also mental health practitioners with years of clinical experience working with others. Topics explored include transmuting emotions into wisdom, meeting challenging relationships with sanity and bringing mindfulness and awareness practices and techniques to clinical work with clients.Programs are attended by a wide range of participants including health practitioners as well as meditators who want to deepen their connection with emotional and relational intelligence These programs are available at Shambhala centres and affiliate venues in a number of formats including weekend workshops, week long seminars and training programs that would include both. Some programs include the experiential study and practice of the five buddha families. (See Maitri Space Awareness section)
