Buddhism and psychotherapy: advice not given review

KeromeKerome Love, love is mysteryThe Continent Veteran

I was listening to this talk on Tricycle, and I thought perhaps people here might enjoy it. The link is here:

It’s basically about a Buddhist psychotherapist’s view on how these two subject areas meet - his name is Mark Epstein, he wrote a book about it. Which I think is an interesting perspective on western Buddhism, since it’s a meeting between the Eastern and Western sciences of mind.

    One could say that the 4NTs & 8FP are just that...a form of self psycho therapy ... curing a dis eased mind...and mediation practice is when one uses the mind to 'cure' the mind...

    There are a lot more Tricycle magazine interviews on SoundCloud, they seem to archive them there so it might be worth browsing.
