Can the meditative traditions of Buddhism be integrated with the practice of Western psychology? John Welwood's latest book addresses this question with new comprehensiveness and depth. His psychological approach brings together three major dimensions of human existence: personal, interpersonal, and suprapersonal, in one overall framework of understanding and practice. TOWARDS A PSYCHOLOGY OF AWAKENING addresses basic questions about the relationship between psychology and contemplative spirituality, the practical implications of this convergence for psychological health and healing, and the implications for relationship and community.
