Thoughts Without a Thinker: Psychotherapy from a Buddhist Perspective

by Mark Epstein - £14.99  Duckworth (1996)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9780715627112 | ISBN 10: 0715627112

As patients and therapists find themselves reaching for new solutions to their problems, the traditional distinctions between matters of the mind and matters of the spirit are increasingly being questioned. Here is the first book on the subject by a classically trained psychiatrist who has immersed himself in the Buddhist tradition.
 
Drawing on his own experience as patient, meditator, and therapist, Mark Epstein argues that the contemplative traditions of the East help patients go beyond merely recognising their problems to healing them. Far from being at odds with the psychodynamic method, such an approach is in fact just what the doctor might order.
 
Epstein explains the unique psychological contributions of the teachings of Buddhism, describes the path of meditation in contemporary psychological language and lays the groundwork for meditation-inspired therapy.
