Description About the author
Pushed by an inner imperative to engage both Buddhist and psychoanalytic
practices wholeheartedly, the writers of these essays are on fire with their struggle
to articulate their lived experience of an as-yet-undelineated frontier of
embodied mind where psyche and spirit converge. The result is a splendid feast
of stories of people who have sought, with bone-deep courage and unflinching
honesty, to honor both their hearts and their intellect in their personal and professional
pursuit of truth. They will be called "pushers of boundaries,"troublemakers,"
and keepers of the gateless gates." Robert Jingen Gunn, author of
Journeys into Emptiness
Into the Mountain Stream represents a natural development in the conversation
between Buddhism and psychoanalysis. This fluid, evolving, multi-textured conversation
encompasses theory, philosophy, technique, and the personal experiences
of those involved as patients, as clinicians, and as Buddhist practitioners.
This collection's clinical material will expand and enrich the rapidly growing theoretical
and technical literature. In this sense, Into the Mountain Stream bridges
the gap between discourse that has impact and language that is informational.
