One therapy room, two minds.

One streaming, one witnessing.

Which is the river, which is the riverbank?

Not a bridge to burn between these two halves of one and the same processional whole.

Learn about nondual approaches to psychotherapy:

Sacred Mirror: Nondual Wisdom & Psychotherapy (by J. Prendergast, P. Fenner, and S. Krystal)

Book description:

“How is modern psychotherapy impacted when it is approached from the presence and understanding of the unconditioned mind? What happens when therapists are able to function as a sacred mirror for their clients’ essential nature, reflecting back not only the contents of awareness—thoughts, feelings and sensations—but awareness itself? Informed by their direct experience as well as by nondual teachings from both eastern and western wisdom traditions, the authors take a fresh look at what psychotherapy can be. These seminal essays will challenge and inspire readers to approach psychotherapy in a new way—as a potential portal for experiencing their deepest nature as free and joyful beings.

Seasoned clinicians, Dan Berkow, Stephan Bodian, Dorothy Hunt, Sheila Krystal, Lynn Marie Lumiere, Richard Miller, John Prendergast, John Welwood, Jennifer Welwood and Bryan Wittine, and innovative western spiritual teachers, Adyashanti and Peter Fenner, explore critical issues at the interface of psychology and spirituality from a nondual perspective.”

my own 2008 review of this book:

Fourth Wave Therapy Arrived: Dzogchen psychology has arrived… this is the post-CBT-post-DBT-post-ACT psychology. “It is because it isn’t.” Welcome to the next non-paradigm!”
