September 20 2012 Buddhism Newsletter

Hi all,

Happy Equinox. Here are some new articles for your enjoyment, as well as information on my latest teleseminars:

Mindfulness for Healing Trauma
A growing number of psychotherapists and other mental health practitioners are incorporating Buddhist-based meditation and mindfulness practices into their therapeutic work, especially with trauma victims. Explore how this may help you or someone you know.

The Law of Attraction and Buddhism
'We are what we think.' This first line of the Dhammapada, one of the foremost records of the Buddha’s teachings, is often quoted by supporters of the Law of Attraction. But are contemporary teachings on the Law of Attraction compatible with Buddhism?

I would love to hear your comments on both of these topics in the Buddhism forum:

Also, as I mentioned, I am currently accepting registrations for three new teleseminars:

Energy Healing for Sexual Trauma
Empowering Your Feminine Energy Body
Ancient Egyptian Mysticism

You can find information on all three here:

In closing, here is a lovely passage from Radical Acceptance by Tara Brach, also quoted in the Mindfulness for Healing Trauma article above:

"For all of us, the path of befriending our experience requires great gentleness and patience...the deep and persistent tendency to think that something is wrong with us is a prison that prevents us from living and loving fully. Yet as we learn to meet whatever arises in our body, heart and mind with Radical Acceptance we discover a precious freedom. Rather than being identified as a defended and insufficient self, we come to trust what Buddhists call our Buddha nature—the awareness and love that are our true essence."

In Peace,
Lisa Erickson, Buddhism Editor
