Verbally understanding or narrating something is not, in and of itself, sufficient to bring about change. The premise of relational psychotherapies (including the Buddhist-informed approach described here) is that change comes into being as a function of special moments of communication between psychotherapist and patient. The psychoanalyst Daniel Stern (2004) terms these “moments of meeting.” The defining quality of such special now moments is the profound sense of mutual connection. It is on this stage of the therapeutic here-and-now that change most readily unfolds.
