Buddhist Counseling and Nondual Therapy

Buddhist Counseling and Nondual Therapy

Nondual Therapy is philosophy in which the “goal” (if you want to call it that) is for you to return to the natural state (often termed: “unconditioned awareness”). Traditionally, when suffering happens, most of us believe thoughts, emotions and behaviors are problematic and things to get rid of. When good things happen to us, we wish to stay in the desire mode or to get the object of our affection. In therapy, you will learn to simply observe internal and external experience from a place of peace, and rest in the sense that you already have everything in the present moment and you are already perfect as you are. The central notions of independence from “the self” (the one that thinks, emotes, behaves, etc.), nonjudgmental attitude, curiosity and wonder are encouraged. Many techniques are used, some being: 1) reexamining the perceived suffering and to inquire and reflect into the truth, 2) deeply asking yourself the question, if “you are not already at peace right now?,” 3) noticing dualistic thinking (black and white) and the notion that you are perpetually right or can always control reality, and relaxing into the Unknown, 4) natural release of attachment to thoughts and emotions through breath and body, and 5) awakening to the truth of “what is,” not our conceptual definition of reality. This approach is deeply practical and requires an active meditation and/or contemplative practice.
