Ethics and Communication for Healing Arts
From Buddhism and Traditional Medicine Teachings

Private and Group Lesson Workshops

Join me (Nephyr) for private or small group workshops exploring and understanding ethics for the healing arts as taught through the lens of traditional medicine and Buddhism, and communication through the teachings of non-violent/compassionate communication. Classes not already scheduled are individually tailored.  All workshops are rooted in kindness and ancient wisdom and provide truly applicable useful tools for navigating therapist/client relations.  Students will be given certificates reflective of in person class hours attended. Topics we will cover include but are not limited to:

  • Buddhist teachings as ethical guides for healing arts practitioners
    This follows teachings from Thai medical studies in which the Buddhist precepts are redefined specifically for those in medical professions.

  • Rules for traditional medicine practitioners ~ in which we find that the Hippocratic Oath and all basic boundaries of medicine are universally understood throughout geography and history.

  • Buddha dharma and parables as tools for communication with healing arts patients/clients.

  • Communication will be explored through peaceful communication techniques that enhance empathetic listening, soften potentially challenging interactions, and enrich exchanges of gratitude and praise. 

  • The brahmaviharas for healing arts practitioners; Buddhist teaching in good will, compassion, sympathetic joy and equanimity.

  • For healing arts teachers workshops can be tailored to include communication as applies to instructing groups and individuals.

    Scheduled group workshops 50% or more of tuition proceeds are donated to charity; primarily charities working to mitigate climate change, and to protect humans and other sentient beings from abuse and oppression.
