Mantra and Chanting : Force For Good 2016 | ‘-0001-11-30

Anjushrinamasamgiti : Mantra and Chanting with Krishna Das and Robert AF Thurman Force For Good 2016 New York City 2016

In this short video Mark Epstein M.D. gives an introduction to the “Satipaṭṭhāna Sutta” , how it relates to the Psychotherapy of Freud, Jung and the work of British pediatrician and psychoanalyst D. W. Winnicott. Includes a discussion of the relationship between mindfulness, addiction and the role of breastfeeding in Buddhist + Non-Buddhist Cultures.

This is an excerpt from the archive video of the February 2016 teaching on the ‘Satipatthana Sutta’ (also known as the Discourse on the Establishing Mindfulness in the Pali Cannon) with Mark Epstein M.D. from the Force For Good Class Series, recorded at Tibet House US in New York City.

In the full video Dr. Epstein uses Anālayo’s English translation of “Satipaṭṭhāna: The Direct Path to Realization” Dr Mark Epstein leads a discussion of vipassana meditation + the relationship between Buddhist mindfulness and modern psychotherapy.

Winnicott is excellent about talking about the middle ground or balance between impinging or intruding and abandoning. It’s easy to misinterpret the kind of presence that Winnicott encourages as being more selfless than a good therapist has to be.

Winnicott talks so beautifully about both how important it is for a mother to be able to fail her child, and how normal it is for children to hate their parents and parents to hate their children.

The “good-enough” mother doesn’t need to be taught, but intuitively knows her task, in relation to her child’s anger: to simply survive, not to retaliate or abandon, but simply to survive. And I think there is something in that intuitive sense that one needs to survive, without the need to abandon.

To stay in that place allows an experience of both separation and union, so that it continues to unfold in an ongoing way.
