Blending the lessons of psychotherapy with Buddhist teachings, Mark Epstein offers a revolutionary understanding of what constitutes a healthy emotional life

The line between psychology and spirituality has blurred, as clinicians, their patients, and religious seekers explore new perspectives on the self. A landmark contribution to the field of psychoanalysis, Thoughts Without a Thinker describes the unique psychological contributions offered by the teachings of Buddhism. Drawing upon his own experiences as a psychotherapist and meditator, New York-based psychiatrist Mark Epstein lays out the path to meditation-inspired healing, and offers a revolutionary new understanding of what constitutes a healthy emotional life.

Industry Reviews

"I loved Thoughts Without a Thinker. Mark Epstein has given us a brilliant account of how an ancient science of mind, based on a rich meditative tradition, can complement therapy and lead to new dimensions of wisdom and wholeness."--Joan Borysenko, author of Fried: Why You Burn Out and How to Revive "A most lucid and expert account of the wedding of psychotherapy and meditation. An Eastern-Wester psychology that truly speaks from the inside of both worlds."--Jack Kornfield, author of Meditation for Beginners "A marvelous book that is at once scholarly and fresh, informative and personal."--Stephen A. Mitchell, author of Can Love Last? "Epstein's solid book offers another example of contemporary efforts to revitalize psychotherapy."--Spirituality and Practice "Epstein tries bravely and earnestly to make such matters of the mind and heart as clear as possible."--Robert Coles, New England Journal of Medicine "A groundbreaking work.... The book will take its place among the classics of the literature of meditation."--Jon Kabat-Zinn, author of Mindfulness for Beginners "Mark Epstein's book is inspired by its lucidity.... After Thoughts Without a Thinker, psychotherapy without a Buddhist perspective looks like a diminished thing."--Adam Phillips, author of Missing Out: In Praise of the Unlived Life "A highly personal, thoughtful, illuminating synthesis.... Patients, psychologists, and mediators...will find much spiritual nourishment."--Publishers Weekly "Eloquent yet down-to-earth, this gem offers an exhilarating and expansive perspective on the therapeutic process."--Booklist "One of the most sophisticated integrations of the therapeutic and spiritual disciplines."--Daniel Goleman, New York Times
