What are contemplative creative therapy (CCT) and its methodologies for training the embodied mind for mental health and wellness? This online course briefly overviews Buddhist-based origins and the foundation of contemplative creative science applied in psychotherapy and clinical settings. This course is mainly theoretical, with some contemplative practices.

This course offers the unique opportunity to:

  • Explore the origins and emergence of Dharma, Dharma arts, and Buddhist Psychology as mind training in India and Asia.

  • The impact of colonialism on modern Buddhism and Buddhist psychology.

  • Learn about Buddhist-based contemplative science, ideas, and methods in mental health.

  • Discover the foundations of contemplative creative psychotherapy (CCT).

Participants of this course will:

  • The impact of colonialism on modern Buddhism and Buddhist psychology and its integration in Europe and North America.

  • Learn about Buddhist-based contemplative science, ideas, and methods in mental health with mindfulness-, compassion-based protocols, and interventions and their adaptations into many spheres of life.

  • Discover the foundations of contemplative creative psychotherapy (CCT) as a Buddhist-based secular approach and intervention in clinical settings

This course is essential to understanding the origins and foundations of contemplative creative therapy (CCT).

 

We start with the ancestral roots of meditation and yoga, to Buddha Gautama’s realization, Dharma teachings and the formation of the Sangha, and the development of sacred Dharma Art in India. Then, after Buddha Gautama’s death, we explore the second wave of Buddhist teachings that spread to Northern and Southeast Asia.

 

We look briefly at the impact of invasions, commercial trades, and colonization on Buddhist modernism, Buddhist psychology, and Dharma arts practices integrated into North American culture.

 

In the last module, participants are introduced to the contemplative creative science (CCS) definition and theory and contemplative creative therapy (CCT) approach and methods of intervention in mental health.

Course Includes

  • Live five-day sessions.

  • Ten hours of education and practice. 

  • Course reading list and resources.
