CPASS (Counselling, Psychotherapy and Applied Social Sciences)
How much truth can we bear? Psychotherapy and an Environment in Crisis
Friday 25th May 2018 from 6.00 to 7.30pm, Teviot Lecture Theatre
Psychotherapy has an invaluable part to play in understanding the psychological and cultural drivers of climate change. It also has a great deal to offer in supporting resilience on a changing planet. I will be exploring how to offer help to those wishing to make sense of, and take meaningful action in this new and frightening reality; suggesting that we may need to challenge some implicit assumptions of the psychodynamic method to do so.

The Middle Pathway
December 28th-31st, 9-5.30pm
Triyoga Camden, London
So the darkness shall be the light, and the stillness the dancing. — T. S. Eliot
Through the four days of the retreat I will be telling the tale of Eros and Psyche. We’ll be travelling from Mount Olympus, home of the gods down to the underworld and back again, restored and refreshed, hopefully, for the new year.
The retreat includes traditional yoga practises led by two of triyoga’s most well-respected and experienced teachers, Anna Ashby and Joey Miles and Chanting led by Nikki Slade, resident kirtan leader at triyoga.
This year’s retreat focuses on ‘the middle pathway’, a term used by various philosophical traditions from Buddhism, to Taoism and Yoga, where the experience of unified awareness becomes known through the experience of the ‘centre’ and explores the different levels of subtle experience at the core of the hatha yoga tradition.
