Who Should Attend
This course is open to anyone with a heart to heal and a willingness to commit to their own personal development for the benefit of others. Members of the public including people from the caring professions, therapists, psychologists and educators are most welcome. The Buddhist approach to non-attachment changes the way that thoughts and feelings affect each other. It offers freedom from trauma, worries and negative emotions effortlessly and without relapse. The changes are recognisable and dramatic.
It’s a well known story within the therapy community. Stephen Brooks gave away his house, car and all of his possessions to ordain as a Buddhist monk in the 1990’s and spend 8 years meditating by a waterfall in the jungles of northern Thailand. He gave up his successful life in London to discover if Buddhist teachings could be integrated with western psychotherapy. After eight years of mindfulness meditation he discovering the answer and returned to teaching in the west so he could share this wisdom with us.
Since then, his highly effective way of interacting with people has been researched and thoroughly tested and has been shown to produce dramatic results in others in only an hour of conversation or teaching, including freedom from long term problems. Stephen’s approach to living is an amazing blueprint for living a happy and stress-free life.
