Publisher's Summary

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 Epstein's 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.

Blissfull commuting

Having been a fan of the author's books for many years selected him for the first audio book to purchase. Wasn't disappointed one bit. So nice to have the book read in the author's wonderful voice. Much more powerful than turning pages, leaves the mind free to ponder the ideas being provided. Took a long trip in the car and played the book from my PDA through a cassette converter into my car radio. Driving time flew by. Didn't achieve enlightenment this trip but there is always tommorrows commute.

Recommend the book highly. Wonderful bridge of western psychology for one side of the brain and eastern wisdowm for the other.
