Connect to John with


john2015Thomas Merton a well known Christian Mystic said “What can we gain by sailing to the moon, if we are not able to cross the abyss that separates us from ourselves?”

This website is the umbrella name for the work of John F. Doherty.

John offers MB inter-ST (Mindfulness based inter-Spiritual Training).

MB inter-ST training looks at the areas of mindfulness, meditation and contemplation in a variety of contexts that are secular, psychological, spiritual and religious.Maria

This is similar to MBSR, MBCT and MBC (mindfulness based stress reduction, mindfulness based cognitive therapy and mindfulness based compassion) and draws on many of these teachings while offering a more inter-spiritual development and training. Inter-spiritual development empowers people to go inwards to connect more deeply with the Oneness and inter-connectedness of everything and then bring that into everyday living in service to the world.

John also offers professional support and development for the workplace empowering individuals and groups in processing and learning in the work they do.

John teaches and works with his wife Maria Jesus on a 10 month program on Empowering people in their relationships. Maria Jesus also offers 1-1 sessions in this area.
