Reflections on Psychodrama and Buddhist Practice

Abstract: The author asserts that there are several similarities and complementary elements between the psychodrama method and the Buddhist practice of meditation. He suggests that, while the two cultures appear completely different, they share several underlying values and attitudes. Among the similarities is the atmosphere of openness and acceptance required by both psychodrama and meditation and a recognition of the healing powers of consciousness. Psychodrama and meditation are mutually supportive practices that increase sensitivity and help to develop deeper understanding of life.
