Who is the Institute for Meditation and Psychotherapy?

We are a non-profit organization dedicated to the education, training and support of mental health professionals in integrating mindfulness, meditation and psychotherapy.

The vision of the Institute for Meditation and Psychotherapy (IMP) is practice-based, and all teaching faculty have extensive personal and professional experience in the practice of mindfulness meditation or other mindfulness practices. Most educational programs offer CE credit for healthcare professionals. We also offer psychological consultation for meditation centers, clinical supervision, psychotherapy referrals, and networking opportunities for interested clinicians.

Cushion and Couch is IMP's quarterly e-journal, featuring articles, interviews, and book reviews written by and for members of the community.
If you are interested in contributing, or just want to give feedback, please send us an e-mail.
