Reflections of Mind
Western Psychology meets Tibetan Buddhism
An investigation of the functioning of the human mind and the development of personality, with contributions by leading Western psychologists.
This book explores the remarkable Tibetan Buddhist approach to these concerns and the integration of the body/mind complex, giving fresh insight into the understanding of human consciousness from a first-hand point of view. Such well-known psychologists as Charles Tart, Claudio Naranjo and Gay Luce combine personal experiences in Tibetan Buddhist practices with professional training in western therapeutic methods to offer a unique perspective on current trends in Western psychology. As these and other western psychologists attest, Tibetan psychological expertise and its wealth of practical techniques are casting light on deeper dimensions of mind and inspiring effective new approaches to therapy. Tarthang Tulku`s clear explanation of practices that reveal the nature of mind invites us to develop our greatest human resource and embark on an endlessly fascinating path of discovery.
