Product description


'In this book, which offers new insights on areas explored in his previous writings, Bazzano brings to bear his playful wit, widely cultured knowledge, and direct experience of both Zen and psychotherapy in a poetic investigation of important themes which will be relevant to both professionals and to the general reader.'

Caroline Brazier, author of Buddhist Psychology, course leader at Tariki Trust

'This book is a pleasure to read: an eloquent exploration of the "borderland" between Zen and psychotherapy. Writing with a wealth of experience from both sides of this borderland, as a Buddhist monk and a practicing psychotherapist, Bazzano brings a depth of insight which is original and stimulating.'

Dr Monica Lanyado, Child and Adolescent Psychotherapist, British Psychotherapy Foundation

'This brilliant book by Manu Bazzano is for those of us who are open and courageous enough to seek a more meaningful path. Bazzano is that rare, innovative thinker who can weave together scholarship and personal reflection and come up with stimulating and profound insights. He sees and feels deeply, and creatively synthesizes traditional approaches into an original worldview and shares it with us. A master of both psychotherapy and Zen Buddhism, Bazzano guides us between the two with wisdom, grace, and courage, and along with him we discover new ways that are surprising and exhilarating. Those of us who are not content with simplistic, status quo thinking or a quick fix but desire a fresh, transcendent approach to spirituality and secularity will be richly rewarded.'

David Forbes, PhD, LMHC, Associate Professor, School Counseling Program, Brooklyn College/CUNY
Affiliate Faculty, Urban Education Doctoral Program, CUNY Graduate Center

"Manu Bazzano, Italian-born Zen monk and psychotherapist has been steadily producing his share of insightful monographs and edited volumes on existential–phenomenological, person-centered, and Buddhist therapies for well over a decade now. One of his latest contributions to the fields of comparative religious philosophy and psychotherapy is the current volume which, by infusing relevant Zen Buddhist insights into classical Western psychotherapeutic approaches, endeavors to reevaluate the role of the therapist, thus reinvigorating the therapeutic process itself."

Lehel Balogh, Religious Studies Review
