Description

Different Paths, Different Strengths

Freedom from unnecessary suffering is the goal of both Buddhism and modern psychotherapy, yet each approaches this intention from a very different perspective. "Buddhist practice helps us awaken to a well-being that is independent of our circumstances," explains Bruce Tift, "while Western psychotherapy helps us bring our disowned experience into awareness in order to live in a more skillful and satisfying way."

On Already Free, this therapist and Buddhist practitioner opens a fresh dialogue between these two perspectives, and explores how each provides us with essential keys to experiencing full presence and aliveness.

Practical Tools and Wisdom from the Eastern and Western Traditions

Buddhism gives us powerful tools for breaking free of our own identity drama and our fascination with day-to-day problems, yet it does not address how early childhood experience shapes our adult lives. Western psychotherapy provides a wide range of proven techniques for understanding and untangling the development of our neurotic patterns, but it is only beginning to recognize the powerful impact of exploring awareness itself."These two approaches sometimes contradict and sometimes support each other," Tift explains. "When used together, they can help us open to all of life in all its richness, its disturbances, and its inherent completeness. "With a keen understanding of the wisdom of East and West, and a special focus on working with intimate relationships as a pathway to spiritual awakening, Bruce Tift presents seven immersive sessions of insights, wisdom, and practical instruction for realizing the fundamental freedom that is your birthright.

  • The Developmental Approach - why we still use our childhood survival skills after we outgrow them
  • The Fruitional Approach - Buddhist wisdom on finding liberation without resolving our historic issues
  • Relationships and Awakening - practices for couples to develop "healthy intimacy" and welcome connection and separateness
  • Why we use "neurotic organization" to limit our life experience, and how to challenge this self-perpetuating process

Warm, pragmatic, kind and helpful

The author alternates headier, more theoretical chapters with chapters containing more practical observations, so don’t fret if either one of those styles doesn’t keep your attention.

Important contribution

I can’t recommend this audiobook listen highly enough. I value the works of Tolle, Singer and Katie, though many people have difficulty translating their wisdom into day to day life. Informed by professional therapy practice, Bruce Tift brings these core insights down to the earth we all reside on.

Top 2 psychotherapy / self development books

Highly suggested for individuals to make sense of their own journey, to find peace while traveling it and for relationship advice...I wish that my previous partner had listened to this before the split in ways happened.

I never knew there was a book on the intuitive question I asked 5 years ago...how does the path of the line (psychotherapy) meet the circle (buddhist awareness of experience as Bruce puts it).

There is a need for this type of practitioner in the mental health field.

What comes first, the sensation or thought..
