Ron Taffel's Friday Lunch Address

 

What an amazing, moving presentation. Right from the start, those video clips were powerful. For me, the first news and movie clips were depicting events and time periods that I've only learned about - they happened before I was born.

      Dan Siegel's Saturday Morning Keynote

       

      I have never been a “science person”. Science has always intimidated me; knowing that I won’t fully understand, terms like “neurons” usually make my eyes glaze over.

      But, Dan Siegel’s presentation “The Neurobiology of We” was absolutely fascinating. Even though he threw a few of those scary science words at us, he added jokes and vivid examples to make his ideas significant and clear.

          Jerome Kagan's Saturday Lunchtime Address

           

          My mind is reeling after Dr. Jerome Kagan's lunch presentation: "Human Nature and the Possibility of Change."

          People are wired from birth to have certain dispositions, but are we condemned to these traits?  Kagan said, "Science is at an early age for understanding temperament," and that there is an extremely large number of possible temperaments.

              Tara Brach's Sunday Morning Keynote

               
              I can see why Tara Brach was chosen to lead us on the last leg of our Symposium experience. Her presentation about awareness and opening our hearts was very thought-provoking. Even her voice is soothing and even, as if she is perpetually leading meditation. Read more

                Favorite Sunday Workshop or Learning Moment?

                 

                As lively and energetic as it can be to have many people with diverse opinions, perspectives and backgrounds participating in a workshop, my experience Sunday was different because it was such an intimately small group.

                    Afterward: Most Memorable Symposium Moment

                     
                    Maybe it was grand and public - a moment of unmatched eloquence from a keynote speaker. Or maybe it was small and mundane, but unexpectedly moving - or downright hysterical. What was YOUR most memorable moment at Symposium 2010?

                      It's A Therapists' Life

                       
                      Today was typical and atypical for a Wednesday. It usually starts with heavy breathing and lots of sweat but my personal trainer was out of commission, having undergone reconstructive knee surgery for the second time in 6 months because of basketball-related injuries (or should I say injuries due to delusions of immortality). So I slept in – and loved it. Yesterday had been a seven-client day and I had gone to bed exhausted from lugging projections from session to session. Sometimes you can leave it in the office and other times, it gets in you and stays in you. Even my yoga class the night before had been only mildly restorative. At times, the breath is no match for seven hours of potent and unsavory unconscious attributions. I was told once that the key to being a good therapist is finding a way, when you’re getting covered in shit during a session, to keep one eye open so you can see where the shit’s coming from. Certainly some days smell sweeter than others, but there does seem to be truth in that advice.
