ABOUT THE MORITA SCHOOL
The Morita School of Japanese Psychology is dedicated to the application of scientifically sound approaches based on Eastern philosophy for the health and well-being of mankind. Founded on the traditions of Morita Therapy, Naikan, and Mindfulness, our mission is to provide effective training and consultation for healthcare professionals and convenient, cost effective individual instruction.
To be what we are, and to become what we are
capable of becoming, is the only end of life.
- Robert Louis Stevenson

Morita School approaches all emphasize learning through experience and practice over talking about issues. After a few brief educational sessions to learn the simple and profound philosophy underlying this practice, most people naturally begin to apply the ideas to make practical changes in their lives. This approach helps people to reflect on their past, but remain focused on the present. The Morita School approach helps people to live more realistically and effectively by accepting the truth, cultivating attention, identifying purpose, and taking committed actions to live richer and more purposeful lives.
The educational and experiential nature of these approaches make them uniquely well designed for internet based instruction. A teacher can provide resources, structure assignments, and individualize teaching to your specific interests and needs, allowing you to use the everyday experiences of your life as learning opportunities.
