Publisher's Summary

Upon its first publication, this path breaking book launched an explosion of interest in how Eastern spirituality can enhance Western psychology. Since then, the worlds of Buddhism and psychotherapy have been forged into a revolutionary new understanding of what constitutes a healthy emotional life.

In his insightful introduction, Mark Epstein reflects on this revolution and considers how it is likely to evolve in the future.

Critic Reviews

“Mark Epstein’s book is inspired in its lucidity . . . After Thoughts Without a Thinker, psychotherapy without a Buddhist perspective looks like a diminished thing.” (Adam Phillips, author of On Kissing, Tickling, and Being Bored)
“A groundbreaking work…The book will take its place among the classics of the literature of meditation.” (Jon Kabat-Zinn, author of Wherever You Go, There You Are)
“A marvelous book that is at once scholarly and fresh, informative and personal.” (Stephen A. Mitchell, author of Freud and Beyond)
