Description Contents
From my first contact with Buddhism I realized it's virtual simpatico with the therapeutic process. Various elements in Buddhism rang a bell.The concept of immediacy as a form of dynamic transference; the self translating into the observing ego, and being receptive to induced feelings.I received the same psychological nutrients as I had in the most significant moments of therapeutic leverage. I was at home in the arena of Buddhism and I was going west because there was so much more to gain. When I met Chogyam Trungpa, I knew I was in the presence of a Master. Almost everything he said I could fit into my treatment schema. I absorbed his incorruptible honesty in pursuing and confronting pathology and I made it part of the warp and woof of my professional functioning. The same spirit emanated from all his faculty and community, and above all they showed me the presence of resistance and habitual patterns that hold us prisoner. This book opens the door to a vital appreciation of working with patients in the moment. To overlook it, is to overlook the essence of our craft.
