Life changing and so profound that words fail me - Lorina Harris - Therapist
Stress and worry take their toll on us. Physical and mental illness is the result of our attachment to things we can't have, our fear of losing what we've got, or continually wanting something better. Buddhist Psychotherapy can help you let go of any habitual desire to consume, and instead be much happier with a simpler stress free life.
True wealth is being happy with less. For hundreds of thousands of years our ancestors lived a simple life as hunter gatherers, the nearest equivalent to the iPhone was the stone hand axe, which our ancestors made themselves. We are living proof that they survived and thrived with only a few possessions. What lessons can they teach us?
Relationships can be difficult, yet nature has bound us together with love as the adhesive. We can't afford to get it wrong, but we do because we attach to the wrong things. We often put ourselves first, or we love someone for what they can give us rather than for who they are. True love is unconditional, and doesn't need or expect anything in return.
Parental responsibility includes love, nurture, guidance and then letting go. The family home is a sacred place, somewhere to grow as human beings, to share, laugh and cry and learn about our larger global family. It's a place to learn respect for others, to learn compassion, to appreciate the unique quality of every individual on the planet.
Ambition built on a win win avoids harming others when on our way to the top. Survival has created an attachment to winning over others as if we were still fighting with spears, yet if we step back and include others in our own success, our success is far greater. Buddhist Psychotherapy teaches us to value and celebrate the success of others as if it were our own.
Sex is more than just feeling good. Sex is about giving and receiving and should be mostly about giving. We are hardwired to have sex to maintain the species, and these good feelings are there to guarantee that we keep on doing it. So use sex as an opportunity to give love at the deepest level of your being, not just for gratification.
