A number of long-time students of TSK have engaged in discussions about, and been fascinated by, the possibilities for how TSK IN PSYCHOLOGY might manifest today. To that point…

Hayward M. Fox, PhD is a clinical psychologist who has spent forty years as a psychotherapist and teacher. He has been a student of Tarthang Tulku Rinpoche’s vision of Time, Space, and Knowledge for thirty of these years. During this time he has conducted over 60,000 psychotherapy sessions; listening to people describe their deepest conflicts and concerns. Having traditional western psychology training, and the benefit of the TSK vision, both have given Dr. Fox a useful perspective on the causes and conditions of our unhappiness. It has become clear to him that we suffer from our self-preoccupation, the belief in our self as a separate entity that must be protected, maintained and perpetuated.

    Thank you, David, for posting the link to Haywards video on youtube. His presentation is inviting and encouraging – the medium may be helpful for people, who don`t read a TSK-book, not only for those who are interested in psychology. New possibilities and more openess.
    Thank you, too, for the wonderful photos you present for us. Another medium to contact space!
