Being present in axiety

Tami Simon speaks with Bruce Tift. Bruce has been a psychotherapist since 1979, a practitioner of Vajrayana Buddhism for more than 35 years, and has taught at Naropa University for 25 years. He is the author of the new Sounds True audio learning course Already Free: Buddhism Meets Psychotherapy on the Path of Liberation. In this episode, Tami speaks with Bruce about his perspectives on therapy as informed by Buddhist insights—examining how our “neurotic organization” exists to insulate us from legitimate suffering, why much of our growth comes from acting in ways that are counter-instinctual, and what it might mean to practice psychotherapy with the view that there is no problem we actually need to solve.
