Book Three: The Practice of Loving Presence for Therapists, includes an expansion on Ron’s introduction to the practice as well as research-based explanations about the application of loving presence for therapists and other helping professionals. With input from psychotherapist and Zen priest, Flint Sparks PhD, this book also looks at therapy as spiritual practice. As in the other books in this series, it offers practical exercises, here specifically for therapists in general and Hakomi practitioners in particular.
