“MMT Clinicians and participants help bridge the traditions of Western thinking and Eastern mindfulness through the experience of the spoken word that is shared within a given moment of purposeful connection.”
Multi-Modality Therapy balances Western thinking that is epitomized by the French Philosopher, René Descartes phrase, “I think, therefore I am,” with Eastern philosophical teachings on mindfulness/being in the moment.
The merging of thinking and being allows patients to develop an understanding of how their cognitive strengths/challenges can seek balance with their need to find connection within the moment, themselves, and the people around them. Both cognition and being have value and serve as a foundation for fruitful intellectual and interpersonal growth.
MMT also accepts that within the world much suffering exists but over time it is balanced out by the experience of deep and pervasive joy.
MMT also assumes that one must balance moments of being together with others and moments of being by oneself. Being with others can prompt feelings of interpersonal intimacy or interpersonal alienation. Whereas, being by oneself can also be experienced as promoting both solitude/connection with oneself or an overriding feeling of being disconnected from others.
