The paradoxical nature of change illustrates how change happens when we fully embrace who we are and let go of trying to become something we are not. Michael will explore how embracing this energizing paradox in our personal lives and clinical work can support the emergence of fresh and novel experiences for ourselves and for our clients. Using clinical examples and anecdotes from his years as a Buddhist monk, Michael will engage attendees in theoretical and experiential explorations of this core principle present in existential-humanistic therapies.
