In this new paperback version of this popular title, Dr. Rosenbaum, a practicing psychotherapist, explores the challenges and joys of making our lives into coherent wholes. In the midst of our daily busy activity, we often feel fragmented. We experience conflicting demands from our work, personal relationships, families, and spiritual practices.
Psychotherapy addresses this sense of fragmentation in an effort to help us be uniquely ourselves. Zen Buddhist practice insists we find ourselves in every moment of our lives and speaks to the basic connectedness of all things. Zen and the Heart of Psychotherapy attempts to integrate these two basic tenets. Each chapter examines some aspect of sewing together the practice of Zen with the practice of psychotherapy, and the subsequent implications for daily life. Though there is a logical progression to the chapters, each can be read on its own if the reader is interested in how a particular text might inform their psychotherapy or life circumstance.
Through the stories of his clients' as well as through his own difficulties and discoveries, the author invites each reader to actualize the fundamental point: to realize the joy and compassion that comes when we touch the basic ground of life, and to put this joy into play in our everyday activity.
