By Richard Schwartz • A psychotherapist discusses how to help clients transform the disruptive feelings and thoughts that they’ve learned to simply observe during meditation.
By Flint Sparks • A Zen teacher describes the benefits and limitations of traditional meditation practice.
By Bruce Crapuchettes and Francine Crapuchettes Beauvoir • While meditation is usually considered a solitary activity, two therapists discover that the couples intervention they’ve been using for more than 20 years is actually a form of reciprocal relational practice.
