Alfie is a therapist in private practice in Dallas, Texas/USA, is a certified MBSR teacher, a trained MSC teacher, and a certified IMTA (International Mindfulness Teacher Association) member. He is a long-time meditator and his path with Mindfulness and Self-Compassion forms the basis of his psychotherapy. He believes that, while it may seem the world is spinning out of control and there is nothing we can do about it, the practice of Mindfulness and Self-Compassion is a real and valuable contribution we can all make.
There is some research evidence that, if 1% of a population is meditating in a specific area, violence decreases. He has seen for himself, his clients, friends and students, that Mindfulness and Self-Compassion are key to a better life for ourselves and–at the same time–for others.
