Online: Getting Over Your Self – A Buddhist Therapist’s Path to Freedom
A Conversation with Mark Epstein and Amy Gross
Saturday, January 23rd, 2021 | 3:00pm – 5:00pm ET
Is your self a problem? Does it get in the way of your well-being? Twenty-five years ago, when Amy Gross was editor of Elle Magazine, she interviewed Mark Epstein, a then unknown shrink who was about to publish his first book, Thoughts Without a Thinker: Psychotherapy From a Buddhist Perspective. It was the first time a journalist had taken a deep interest, let alone done an interview, let alone taken him out to lunch at Montrachet.
Join Mark and Amy as they sit down together again for a conversation about Mark’s evolving understanding of how therapy and Buddhism combine to untangle the tangle of self and suffering. How does he bring a Buddhist understanding to his work with patients? Is meditation a must? What can therapy offer that Buddhism needs? Plus: a first look at his forthcoming book, The Zen of Therapy.
