Going on Being: Buddhism and the Way of Change


Going on Being: Buddhism and the Way of Change Cover


Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The bestselling author of Going to Pieces Without Falling Apart combines a memoir of his own journey as a student of Buddhism and psychology with a powerful message about how cultivating true self-awareness and adopting a Buddhist understanding of change can free the mind.

Before Mark Epstein became a medical student at Harvard and began training as a psychiatrist, he immersed himself in Buddhism through experiences with such influential Buddhist teachers as Ram Dass, Joseph Goldstein, and Jack Kornfield. The positive outlook of Buddhism and the meditative principle of living in the moment came to influence his study and practice of psychotherapy profoundly. Going on Being is Epsteins memoir of his early years as a student of Buddhism and of how Buddhism shaped his approach to therapy, as well as a practical guide to how a Buddhist understanding of psychological problems makes change for the better possible.

Going on Being is an intimate chronicle of the evolution of spirit and psyche, and a highly inviting guide for anyone seeking a new path and a new outlook on life.

About the Author

MARK EPSTEIN, M.D., is also the author of Thoughts Without a Thinker: Psychotherapy from a Buddhist Perspective. A psychiatrist and consulting editor to Tricycle: The Buddhist Review, he lives in New York City.
