    Interweaving the Ideas of Gregory Bateson and Taoism into a Unique Approach to Therapy

    • by
    • Douglas C. Flemons
    Completing Distinctions develops a new way of thinking about the connection between problems and solutions for family and systems therapists. The author suggests that addiction and other social and ecological dilemmas stem from the belief that distinctions such as hate and love, sickness and health, or problem and solution are irreconcilable oppositions.

    Teachings from Women Who Are Shaping Buddhism in the West

    The Mind of Dogen Zenji

    • edited by
    • Thomas Cleary
    Zen has often been portrayed as being illogical and mystifying, even aimed at the destruction of the rational intellect. These new translations of the thirteenth-century Zen master Dogen—one of most original and important Zen writers—illustrate the rational side of Zen, which has been obscured through the centuries, tainting people's understanding of it. Rational Zen consists of enlightening selections from Dogen's two masterworks, "Treasury of Eyes of True Teaching"… Read More
