Books on Buddhism and psychotherapy

with one comment

Very interesting book list at My Mind on Books. Although the links are to Amazon, don’t forget to check (a) your library and (b) The post begins:

Among its many virtues, Jack Kornfield’s new book The Wise Heart: A Guide to the Universal Teachings of Buddhist Psychology has a “related readings” section (p. 402-407) that provides a good comprehensive bibliography of the intersection of Buddhism and psychotherapy. I hope the author doesn’t mind that I’ve copied it here with links to Amazon for further book information. (Probably the link doesn’t always match the edition given in the bibliography.)
