Employing Wisdom and Compassion in Our Daily Practice with Ron Siegel

Today’s Wisdom: NP0029 – Session 1

With this webcast session we ask ourselves how do we recognize, and share with our clients, the “Wisdom” we have gained. Join Ron Siegel as we discuss how to lay the groundwork of transformation to activate our overall awareness.

After the session, please let us know what you think. If you ever have any technical questions or issues, please feel free to email support@psychotherapynetworker.org.

    Thanks for a great introduction. It reminded me of my living close to a Tibetan monastery and university here in Austria for a couple of years and spending some time with the monks and students there. It made me ‘aware’ that I want to start meditating more regularly than I did over the last months – for me personally as a beginning (which by itself will have an effect on my work with clients) – although more with mediation methods from anthroposophy (Rudolf Steiner) at this time, as I did some modular program recently on these methods and haven’t really found a way of regular practice – which I want to change – so hopefully this first session is a kick-off in this way… Gerd

    Thanks in advance for this series about wisdom – I really enjoyed this first conversation. I recommend the book that Dr. Siegel co-edited, “Wisdom and Compassion in Psychotherapy” – I bought it after attending Christopher Germer’s workshop at this year’s Networker conference. Great collection, so many good contributions.

    Many Thanks for making this available to students of life and for making it so easily understandable to take on board.
    After 48 years on this planet and asking questions in all the wrong places, here in the UK therapy/counselling/mental health has many poor connotations unfortunately,this really helps my path to self understanding/acceptance and the joy of sharing with anyone willing to listen, different ways to view/ experience life on a more joyous level.

  4. Ron, I loved your simple and clear explanation of anicca, dukkha, and anata and even more the humor that you bring to making it relevant to our daily lives and work. Wisdom and compassion are particularly interesting as they are fundamental to cultivating happiness and a meaningful life in both Greek and Buddhist traditions. This is not well understood in today’s world. Thanks for clarifying how mindfulness helps us to steer toward wisdom and away from the “foolishness” that dominates our lives!

  5. Thank you so much for bringing this aspect of therapy into the light. Especially the idea of being aware of our own foolishness. What a wonderful way to express how mindfulness
    can make us better therapists. Also it appears that helping clients understand the aspect of “compassion” for themselves
    seems to move them to a place of more openness and less self denigration. As Tara Brach says “compassion for oneself is a step to transformation and healing ” Probably didn’t get that exactly verbatim but mentioning that in sessions really helps. Again, thanks and am looking forward to the next talk. Francine
