A number of students in the MSW program at Silver are (long-term) practitioners of some form of spiritual discipline, such as Buddhist meditation, t’ai chi, or reiki. We have formed a group to explore the ways in which the knowledge and skills gained from these disciplines might be integrated into our development as social workers, clinicians, and therapists, and to address any issues and concerns that might arise in the process. We meet on the first Sunday of each month. Please reply to firstname.lastname@example.org if you wish to be included on our list, and please feel free to e-mail this to anyone who you think might be interested in joining this discussion.
