Gary Buck

Gary Buck, PhD has been a mindfulness practitioner for nearly 40 years in the Buddhist Theravadan and Vajrayana traditions, including three years as a monk in Thailand. He is a Reiki Master in the Buddhist subtle energy healing lineage of Reiki Jin Kei Do and also teaches Yoga Nidra/iRest. He holds a PhD in Psychology from Meridian University and a BA in Religion from Princeton University. He is currently a post-doc intern at the Child Therapy Institute in San Rafael and Petaluma where he works with both child and adult clients. He also teaches mindfulness in elementary school classrooms and writes CE curriculum for clinicians for the Spiritual Competency Resource Center (www.spiritulcompetency.com). In the mid 70s Gary served as Managing Director of the Insight Meditation Society and was the Associate Director at Spirit Rock Meditation Center from 1997 to 2004. His special interests are the Buddha's teaching on Dependent Origination, subtle energy practices, the role of imagery in Buddhist practice, and the interface between Buddhist practice and psychotherapy. His expertise in secular forms of mindfulness includes training in Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction and Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy as well as teaching mindfulness to elementary school classes through Mindful Schools (www.mindfulschools.org). He utilizes mindfulness-based cognitive approaches in his psychotherapeutic work with both child and adult clients, along with Sand Play, expressive art and play therapies. Dr. Buck also works individually with adults interested in exploring the interface between psychology/psychotherapy and their spiritual practices. His website can be found at www.garybuck.net.
