Mindfulness is central to buddhist psychology, a psychology that is compatible with, although different from, western psychology. An understanding of the psychological matrix from which mindfulness emerges can greatly enhance our experience and understanding of the practice of mindfulness.  This course will explore:

  1. The anatomy of mindfulness
  2. Contrasting eastern and western approaches to both well/ ill being
  3.  the unconscious from  Eastern and Western perspectives
  4. 7 factors that support  mindfulness
  5.  5 hindrances to the cultivating mindfulness


The course is for people who have already had some training in mindfulness and who are interested in –

  • understanding the psychological matrix from which the practice of mindfulness emerges;
  • deepening their personal mindfulness practice; and
  • integrating mindfulness into their existing  professional practice.

The course will be facilitated by Mary O’Callaghan.  As well as being an experienced mindfulness trainer, Mary is an accredited psychotherapist and supervisor.  She has an MA in Jungian Studies. Before becoming a psychotherapist she lived as a buddhist nun and underwent intensive training in buddhist psychology and meditation practices.  She is now committed to integrating mindfulness practices into everyday life.
