About

If you are feeling unfulfilled, stuck, anxious, sad or resentful, or if you find yourself continuing to react to external events in a pattern which does not bring you (or those around you) peace and harmony, the practice of Mindfulness can help reduce your habitual patterns of reactivity and guide you to a more harmonious and peaceful life. We will examine your present needs and personal goals, and together we will determine the best course of action. I highly respect your integrity and belief system, and we will work together to uncover the wisdom that lies within you.
Current research conducted in major universities demonstrates that practicing Mindfulness has significant effects on the brain and can lead to feelings of well-being and the potential for profound healing. Thirty years of study and experience of mindfulness and Buddhist practices (non-sectarian)have deepened my personal and professional work.
My first graduate degree allowed me to develop a parenting education curriculum. After many years of experience with children and parents, my psychotherapy practice also includes play therapy with children, parent education, and couples therapy. As an educator I also facilitate groups of persons who desire to deepen their spiritual practice.

Patricia VanBuskirk's Groups

Meditation and Spiritual Community

I deeply believe in community building to effect personal and social change. I have led groups of like-minded people for over 20 years to learn to meditate and to join together to grow to our fullest potential. Right now we are meeting virtually, and at some point we will return to meeting physically. If you would like to start a group or join one, please call!
