Minding What Matters: Psychotherapy and the Buddha Within
Besorgung - Lieferbarkeit unbestimmt
Beschreibung"Minding What Matters" could be considered part of a new genre, the "literary self-help" book. Echoing the style of Kundera and the insights of Jung, with dashes of "The God of Small Things" and "Thoughts Without a Thinker, " this timely book alternates between discursive sections on Buddhist topics and engrossing fictional scenes between a psychotherapist and a patient. Sometimes going so far as to directly address the reader, the book shows how anyone can intimately explore their mind. By encouraging readers to create a state of inquiry and allowing them to put themselves into hypothetical situations -- such as participating in therapy or engaging in Buddhist practices -- the book shows how to discover inner thoughts and act on them in positive ways. At once informative and evocative, "Minding What Matters" offers an entrancing vision of, in Robert Coles's words, "what it is possible to do and to be."
