Dale Goldstein, LCSW
Dale Goldstein is a Clinical Social Worker and Licensed Psychotherapist who has been actively exploring, since 1966, the uses of meditative, healing, and psychotherapeutic tools in the process of healing individuals, groups, and organizations.
Dale attended the University of Michigan and Wayne State University, where he received a B.S. in Secondary Education in 1967, and a Master of Social Work degree in 1969. In 1971, feeling a lack of depth in his life, Dale moved to Rochester, NY to practice Zen under the guidance of Roshi Philip Kapleau. In 1980, he changed to an inquiry/awareness meditative practice with Toni Packer, with whom he worked for eight more years. Since then, Dale has continued to explore the uses of meditative, healing, and psychotherapeutic tools for opening the heart/mind with a number of world-renowned teachers.
In 1977, Dale co-founded and directed the Rochester Center for the Healing Arts, a wholistic health education and multi-disciplinary treatment center. During this time, Dale also trained in Polarity Therapy, a healing art, with Dr. Pierre Pannetier, and practiced and taught Polarity Therapy throughout the U.S., Canada, and Mexico.
