Morita therapy is an indigenous Japanese therapy often characterized as natural, ecological, purposeful, and action-based psychotherapy developed by the late Dr. Shoma Morita, around 1920. Just shy of a 100-years old, Morita therapy invites people to approach so-called “negative” feelings as a natural human capacity. It welcomes people to refrain from judging what is natural (e.g., feeling sad or anxious) as good or bad, or positive or negative, just as we would not judge an angle of a mountain or a speed of river flow in the same way. Morita Therapy is one of the rarest forms of psychotherapy that potentiates our natural capacity to heal and change. This Eastern age-matured traditional approach offers something powerfully differnt for helping those who could not benefit from more conventional Euro-Western forms of psychotherapies. Our lab is committed to assisting individuals around the globe to improve access to this therapy.
