Being Happy : Buddhism and Its Relation to Modern Psychotherapy

Samantha Anderson

This book outlines the connections between modern Buddhist teaching about mindfulness and self-compassion and Western psychotherapy. Starting with Jungs concept of the Shadow, Anderson goes on to show how self-compassion and mindfulness can silence the voice of the Inner Critic and lead to a happy, balanced state of mind, at peace with oneself and the world. An excellent introduction to a challenging but vital area of thought. Check out our other books at
