The realm of emotion is one of those areas where Buddhism and Western psychology are often thought to be at odds: Are emotions to be valued, examined, worked with as signs leading us to deeper self-knowledge? Or are they something to be ignored and avoided as soon as we recognize them?
Rob Preece feels that neither of those extremes is correct. He charts a path through the emotions as they relate to Buddhist practice, showing that though emotions are indeed "skandhas" (elements that make up the illusory self) according to the Buddhist teaching, there is a good deal to be learned from these skandhas, and paying attention to their content contributes not only to psychological health but to deep insight into the nature of reality. He draws on his own experiences with emotions and meditation, through his training in both Tibetan Buddhism and psychotherapy, to show how working with emotions can be a complement to meditation practice.

Loved this book!
I loved this book for its warmth and wisdom. It weaves western psychology and psychotherapy with buddhist views and practises and does so in a nuanced and beautiful way. I find that this book is infused with a deep understanding that grows out of experience. Reading the book invoked the curiosity to explore how I can bring the perspectives and practises into play in my life, in my dance and in my work as a therapist. Grateful that this book found me and warmly recommend it.
