We cannot find ourselves, or be ourselves, alone. In this book Pilar Jennings examines how these intimate relationships between Buddhist teachers and their students, and psychoanalysts and their patients, evolve and differ, with emphasis on the methods and goals they consciously and unconsciously utilize. Through this comparative examination, Mixing Minds seeks to encourage a growing interest in and respect for healing modalities that are unique to each tradition and healing couple. It explores the interpersonal relationships between psychoanalysts and their patients, and Buddhist teachers and their students. Through the author's own personal journey in both traditions, she sheds light on how these contrasting approaches to wellness affect our most intimate personal connections. These dynamic relationships provide us with keen insight into the emotional ups and downs of our lives-from fear and anxiety to love, compassion, and equanimity. Mixing Minds delves into the most deeply rooted healing relationships of our lives and shows us how they are the key to the mental and emotional well-being.
