Contemplative-Mindfulness Based Therapy for Depression - Studies done on the effects of mindfulness practices in psychotherapy are steadily increasing. Interestingly, there has not been any research conducted on using a “spiritually-based mindfulness practice” (SMP) in the treatment of psychological disorders and enhancement of well being. The workshop extends the conversation by first exploring the spiritual foundation of mindfulness based on Judeo-Christian tradition and utilizing its attendant spiritual resources along with psychological interventions in the treatment of depression.

The goal of the project is to improve the effectiveness of the space as a larger classroom and to create a sacred place for weekly chapels.
