Toward a Psychology of Awakening


This is a book I find helpful to understand more of how spiritual practices of the East can be integrated with psychology of the West. Again it proves for me why the practice of Solution Focused Interventions in counselling settings in countries such as Nepal can work really well. The believe that understanding the different levels of mind, as discussed in Buddhism¬†effect our actions, and then work with your skills and tools that you already have accumulated¬†through life experiences, I feel can be well accepted in the Eastern countries as this is part of many people’s understanding how to go through daily life. This book might be of interest to those who also come from a psychological background and have an interest in the Buddhist philosophy. A worthwhile read I would say.
